Rainbow Dash 3D-Printed Figure by Clawed-Nyasu Rainbow Dash 3D-Printed Figure by Clawed-Nyasu

She's on Ebay!  Please help us fund the completion of our second printer!



This is the swordless version of a 3D print that was originally designed for :iconthunderbolt300:.  We printed an extra copy to take to Unicon, but since our printer was malfunctioning up until the very last week, I didn't get to paint her until we were at the convention.  Now I'm auctioning her off to help pay for things after a very hectic month of moving into a new house, including the fact that we REALLY want to build the second 3D printer now that we have space for it, but some of the parts we bought for it were used to repair the first one.  Please help us toward this goal!  Having a second printer would allow us to dramatically shorten the wait for commissions!

We're also selling several other figures that we've had on hand for a while--see this journal for details!

The funny thing is, it's really obvious we live in a new place now beause the lighting is sooo much better.

Look up "Makerbot" on Google. It can come in kit form and has software that you can install on a computer, making it one of the cheapest brands around. You can get a decent one from them for around $500. Pretty cheap compared to the industrial ones that run into the five digit prices.

its only a matter of time before this technology is used for evil, like printing guns, then nukes... then artificial flavors.

Firstly, it's been done: [link]

Secondly: I'm not worried. Home printers print in _PLASTIC_. It breaks very easily and can't get much force behind it without exploding, so it's more likely to harm the holder by exploding in their hand than anyone the thing is being aimed at. Not only that, 3d printers are expensive and tedious to set up. It's cheaper and easier to buy an actual gun than it is to 3d print one, not to mention you'll get a product that actually, you know, WORKS.

"The panic that this is causing is completely unfounded. It's not that hard to build a crude, working firearm, call it a zip gun, call it whatever you want. It is a lot easier and would be a lot easier to fabricate something with existing materials than it would be to set up a printer and build one of these things. Home manufactured firearms are a next-to-non-existent problem anywhere. I don't think this changes anything very much."

However, 3D printing bodyparts seems to be much more effective: [link]

You know we've had guns freely in this country since the time it was settled, right?

Yes. We also had massacres since then. (remember Boston Massacre even before America was official?)

Yep. But guns weren't the cause of any of them. You won't find one massacre which took place that would have been prevented if firearms were not available.

So you're saying if in the event of a massacre guns were made obsolete, the massacre would happen anyway? By what means?

Pipe bombs, grenades, crossbows, spears, poison gas (chlorine is especially effective), etc. Basically, even if you take away all guns, you still have a plethora of ranged weapons and explosives which can cause just as much, if not more damage, and people were obviously willing to use any means at their disposal to kill, so the argument that guns actually *cause* massacres is invalid. They merely facilitate them, and are an incredibly easy focus for extremists who want a complete disarmament of citizens.

wow that's nice! What material is it? Polyurethane? Polypropylene? PVC? Or just a generic plastic? Or is it even plastic?

All of our ponies are printed in ABS because it's the easiest to smooth (we tried PLA for a while, and...yeah, it wasn't fun.)

You should start a kickstarter for the second printer! I bet a ton of people would contribute!

We've thought about it a lot, but mostly the reason we haven't is because the prize format would basically mean that it would just be a way to get a lot of commissions, which we're already able to do. Although it helps that people do tend to expect Kickstarter prizes to take a long time.

Well, kickstarter isn't really the right format for this sort of thing. They're typically geared toward getting a specific product out the door or promoting an event. We've been looking for crowd-funding options, but it's pretty tricky to find something that fits.
