Happy 4th’ yall!

happy4th

I am so thankful to be able to live in the US. Of course it’s an “effed-up” country where healthcare and schools suck and food is all being manipulated by rich corporations to get more for less. Politicians are retarded and war will never be the answer! TV will make you stupid, literally I mean have you seen the latest reality shows? Common’!

I attended the 3-D printing exhibition at the Museum für Gestaltung in Zürich and not only got to see several items printed on these wonderful machines, I was also able to print something.

What goes into design pricing?
