Engineering Dept at work got a new toy: MakerGear M2 3D printer. So, I had to try it out and see how good it works. I downloaded a model of the Eiffel Tower and voilà! It was a good sample because it showed the speed and limitations of the equipment. The model was downloaded from popular website. The Simplify3D software breaks down the model into G commands to the printer.
[The Eiffel Tower has been in the news lately due to a recent terrorist attack. So, I posted a timely France and Peace picture. BTW, this is a Starbucks mug with wintry snowflakes. SBUX has been in the news for their non-christmas-y cup this year.]
