No. That's progress - natural development cycle of a new technology...

What would be incredible, is you offering the stickers :shock:

Hah, well said. I wonder how expensive this technology is. I wonder how a macro-scale object would look.

Not sure. I can still see the typical stair step effect on the surface.

Brandon may still need to pop this in his tumbler for a bit. Good news is I bet the polishing time would be much shorter. :lol:

Perhaps, but at the same magnification as this I bet the tumbled surface would look like a mountain range! And if this printer made objects at the macro level, I bet the surface finish would look like a mirror.

You took me far to seriously. I put the :lol: at the end there for a reason. Put that car in a tumbler and you'd never be able to find it again. And if you did I doubt it would look anything like a car.

Of course, no offence intended, it's just that the smiley was quite far away from the first sentence and I didn't connect the two :(

I wonder how strong it is. Maybe someone can persuade them to make the smallest working Cube. That would be a good PR stunt that could make the mainstream news.

Not to mention the tumble 'grit' would probably have to be smoke particles :lol:
