'Pirate Bay' for 3D printing launched

The company that developed 3D printed gun parts has announced plans to launch a new firm, dedicated to copyright-free blueprints for a range of 3D printable objects.

Defcad, as the firm will be known, has already been dubbed the Pirate Bay of 3D printing. The site will become a "search engine for 3D printing," according to its founders.

But its flouting of copyright is likely to face legal challenges.

Copy right laws the way they are are bullshit. It slows progress and holds humanity back, and in the information age they are beginning to make no sense. The open source and direct sales models are the way to go. Take the way the producers of Game of Thrones reacted to their show being most pirated ever, good they said, people are talking about it, it probably made us more money by word of mouth. I know I pay for worthy material and content, but it is the pirates that inspire me to want something, and if it is worth it I reward the makers.

The internet will get what it wants one way or the other, that is the new 20 cents (paradigm), we are part of the internet, but it is more than the sum of its parts, and has barely awoken to its true potential.

1000 clams for a machine that makes small plastic airplanes. It's a bargain!

$5000 for one that will print in stainless steel, titanium, glass, steel, aluminum. Seriously, if you think it is all plastic that is a mistake, they can print metal with incredible properties using molecular structures that can not be machined or cast. We are very close to being able to print a car, a real full sized car, all the parts technically can be printed.

Just guessing here but, I think these are 10% of the way there to having Star Trek replicators. They are already working on the other half that you dump your old plastics and metals in, then it breaks it all down atomically and uses it to feed the printer.

Print a sweet pipe in the morning, use to limber up, throw it back in the machine and make a carburetor out of it in the afternoon, maybe 5-10 years before that is a common reality.

I still do origami manually.  8)

Well, not really. The closest I get to origami is folding the dollar bills in half before stuffing them into my pocket. But it sounded good. Almost.

You know, once these printers are more affordable, I'm getting one and making/sharing so many designs!

And I'll be damned if I'm going to use one of the machines to jerk off! I still jerk off manually! But nice machine you got there, completely unspoiled. ;D

Call me when they can make the car out of hemp as Henry Ford did in 1941.  :D

Hmmm...

I would bet that is possible, all you'd have to do is use some sort of hemp "ink" that can be hardened some how, like with uv light or laser or some shit like that. I'd also bet in thirty years we can just print hemp/chronic just another molecule.

We've also skipped over one of the more interesting aspects, printed body parts, I wanna be signed up for a lung now please. But it is true, they are printing human tissue and body parts, http://www.zdnet.com/3d-printing-of-real-human-tissue-7000006723/

It could be my psychedelic worldview getting in the way of rational thought, but it seems to me that living things are not just collections of molecules flying in formation and the act of trying to reduce them to their constituent "active compounds" is not only disrespectful, it's fucking dangerous. We keep receiving that lesson over and over again, but we never learn it.

We don't need high zoot science to get high, or to eat. Let us not fuck with thousands of years of beautiful tradition.  8)

Nope, we are no different than machines, all that you think you are is just an operating system, just like windows or mac. There is nothing in this universe that is made of anything special, just simple building blocks arranged in complicated forms giving the appearance of being "alive".

You are just atoms arranged in interesting and novel ways. Same for everything else in the universe. There are no souls, just wetware computers, we are a few years if not minutes away from realizing our machines (processors) are "alive". There is no difference between you me and a rock, we are all the universe, we are all the big bang, this is just what the big bang looks like from this perspective at this point in time. What I am saying is not aspiritual, it is all inclusive spirituality, we are all one, every atom, every watt of energy.

As far as the "Frankenstein" problem goes, there is no problem, not from the whole's perspective, only if you have some attachment to humans, which I gave up years ago and have been free ever since. We are not special, nor are our creations, they just are. Just being, no attachment. I see zero problem if humanity goes extinct and is replaced by robots, it is just evolution, do we cry over the stars that died to give us the iron in our blood? And nothing will cry when we go extinct leaving the universe either the singularity or robot life.

I'm a pantheist, so have no trouble with the concept of unity. But I can't get all fanboi googly over science, and I flatly reject the absurd reductionism of modern science as it is practiced and preached by those of immature intellect and its attendant outrageous arrogance.

In a way it's a a lot of fun but I can't help thinking of the advice of the Tao Te Ching 'lead a simple life. Don't be too clever.'
