Cool, this makes creating costumes easier. Unfortunately, the same goes for firearms ammunition and parts too.

"As she raised a glass of water, everyone exptected they'd be asked the "half empty or half full" question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired, "How heavy is this glass of water?" The answers called out ranged from 8oz. to 20 oz. She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn't change but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes." She continued, "The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. think about them for awhile and nothing happens. Think about them for a big longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything. Always remember to put the glass down."

Huh, so that's what 3D printing looks like, I've wondered.

You mean people can print firearms ammunition and parts from paper and use them in real guns?

I'm guessing it was expensive.

I wanna learn 3d modelling to be able to print stuff like that in the future.

The day they make designs for a 3D printed car available the old saying of "you wouldn't download a car" used by anti-online piracy activists will become hilarious.

Most consumer grade models that use thermoplastics use the above method.

Nono like what formats do you need the 3d models to be in when trying to print them and so on.
