Post Modern Man

Post-modern man has decided to lose his ability to make value judgments.  This inability will make him revert to savagery, because the barrier between civilization and savagery is one generation.

3D Printed, Machined, or Injection Mold?


The day is truly upon us where one can have a advanced manufacturing facility in the space of a one car garage.

For example, my current setup consists of one large format 3D printer, a 40 watt co2 laser, and 5 computers bought as surplus from a call center for $100 each.

I do have CNC milling capability, although they seem to go out the door as fast as I make them.

If I was to start anew, I could replicate my entire shop setup for less than $10000 dollars.

I could also add in injection molding and a cnc lathe to the toolbox.

I am doing this in a third world country, with limited resources.  What is your excuse?
