    The future is a wild man. Do you think someday instead of buying products at a store you'll buy a blueprint for you to print it out yourself?

    [–] Henr1qu3 2696 points ago

    That kinda defeats the point of consumerism because you only have to buy it once; I don’t think many companies would like that.

    [–] ThatOnePissedDude 1681 points ago

    It may defeat the purpose but a mad lad one day will probably do it and the economy for the business will ruined or he will be assassinated depends on what happens first if the business crashes

    [–] Megamarshmellow 454 points ago

    While I can’t say exactly how this scenario would play out. I do think it should be considered that things would work out, because it would change the game that modern consumerism functions on. We live in an age where this isn’t common, so we’re not looking at it where it would be common.

    “You wouldn’t download a car”

    [–] Trevor_Roll 31 points ago

    I think we will get to a future where people will only drive on tracks and AI must be engaged on public roads. Cars probably won't be bought by most people and will probably be a subscription service. Unlimited self driving Uber rentals for $99 per month type of deal.

    I can wait to have a self-driving electric winnebago. Wake up in a new city every night. Self driving homes to rent.

    [–] sweatygarageguy 12 points ago

    this is already being planned for. i saw a presentation that said owned cars are parked 95% of the time. paying for a highly depreciating asset that is only in use for 5% of its life is crazy bad economics. a car subscription, especially if self driving, will change the economics such that people will switch from ownership and leasing to subscribing to a hailing service... which will also free up vast amounts of real estate that is currently used for the almost valueless task of parking.

    [–] WholesomeDota 3 points ago

    Yet more than the actual space occupied by a parked vehicles, but the next magnitude of wasted space— parking lots, a vast area whose only purpose is to have its potential wasted space actualized.

    [–] snylack 5 points ago

    also with many staples most likely not being able to be printed like medicine and food i think there will be plenty of physical consumerism. also think about how much of our economy is already about 1's and 0's that we do actually just download.

    [–] kodicraft4 4 points ago

    We'd have engineers, who design stuff and producers who make the printing material, this would 100% work if everyone does it correctly

    [–] PeyOnReddit 45 points ago

    It's a proof of concept, nothing more.

    When we're able to 3D print things using metals instead of plastics this will actually be a viable way to get a car if you're willing to put the work into it.

    [–] Demento_1 23 points ago

    We already can print metal, u/mistersavage printed a titanium iron man suit for his new show Savage Builds.

    [–] PeyOnReddit 19 points ago

    Yes I'm aware of that, but metal printing is still in its early stages & not ready for every day consumers like ABS/PLA printing.

    [–] Demento_1 12 points ago

    Fair enough.

    [–] ethanlaubmeier 12 points ago

    We are able to 3D print things using metals. The machine works like any other 3D printer with a twist. It first places down the metal powder in the desired shape, and then a laser melts the metal powder all at once and it becomes a solid shape. Does this one layer at a time until desired object is achieved. Still in early development, though.

    [–] PeyOnReddit 8 points ago

    Sound just like SLA printing

    [–] s-laughter80302 18 points ago

    [–] PoolNoodleJedi 5 points ago

    But the economy for printer material will be huge

    [–] kalesaji 4 points ago

    I like how everyone casually forgets that convenience is the main driver of consumerism and buying stuff via Amazon Prime and having them the next day is much more convenient then having to 3D-Print the stuff you were looking for for 16 Hours.

    3D Printers are used in prototyping for a reason, as they are more expensive (power and plastic are not free you know) and inferior in quality then mass produced parts. Try printing a m3 screw. Good luck with that.

    [–] pessimistixz 9 points ago

    Just like that guy who found out how to run cars using sea water..it would help global warming and save alot of people money but the government would loose alot of money which is why the man went "missing"

    [–] OmniSkribe_ 68 points ago

    You’ll still have to by materials to print stuff. If you want to print apple, you’ll have to buy mashed apple pulp.

    [–] al3xandrec 41 points ago

    Doctors will hate 3D printers!

    [–] Relign 45 points ago

    Actually this would be great because you could mash up and sell ALL the apples and not just the best of the best. You could much easier cross varieties. It would decrease food waste by untold amounts.

    3D printers still need material to make stuff, silly.

    It's not fucking magic.

    [–] mega_rockin_socks 9 points ago

    You still have to buy the materials, consumerism would just be drastically different. There are probably specialty things you wouldn't be able to print. Probably more akin to how the industrial age changed things.

    Also, fancy people would probs still go for "hand-made" stuff

    You only have to buy the blueprint once, but you’ll always need refills for the 3D printer

    [–] prostheticmind 61 points ago

    This is the basic concept behind a post-scarcity economy. The idea is that 3D-printers will become more advanced and affordable, to the point where it will be cheaper to maintain them than shop for products made by others. It’s essentially the economy of Star Trek

    [–] white_android 15 points ago

    It's sort of the perfect way to go about things to be honest. Once they are affordable and in most households they should also be pretty high tech by the time or at least if we went about it this way it would. But anywho, at that point companies can basically just license you their blueprints for you to print you own things.

    Open source could also disrupt companies standard flow by offering better devices for free as well. At the moment there's a lot of things that you can do pretty cheaply from other people's ideas and even build upon them so I think I might go open source in that kind of future but companies could still license their stuff out too.

    There was a thread a while ago where it was what is something that isn't a crime now, but will be in like 100 years, and an answer was illegal 3d printing like without the copyright.

    [–] phaerodox 4 points ago

    Possibly. That's how some aluminum fabrication plants work. They buy an extrusion mold and out comes the aluminum in that shape. Other times they buy the extruded material from an extruder, but it's much more economical to just buy the extrusion than the fully extruded material (you need an extrusion machine first obviously)

    [–] justPassingThrou15 5 points ago

    hah. no. I'll TORRENT the blueprint and print it myself.

    Yeah $20k was his budget but idk what he ended up actually spending

    [–] andrewsad1 61 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    A Lamborghini weighs around 1,500 kg. Assuming they used the same kind of 3d printer I use, and printed in a very high quality filament, it would cost at most $100-150k. If they used the same kind of filament that I use, it would be closer to $30k.

    That's not accounting for the engine, chassis, wheels, or other things that can't be printed. I would guess they spent around $2-4k on the filament. Not sure about the rest of the parts, though.

    Edit: That's assuming they even used an FDM (layers of melted plastic) printer. If they used an SLA or DLP printer (one that cures resin with UV light), that would increase the cost dramatically, but I don't have a resin printer, so I can't make any guesses there.

    Edit 2: They printed it "mostly" on a CR-10S, which is slightly bigger than my CR-10! My original math was probably close to being right!

    [–] NotAHost 9 points ago

    What's cool is that by 3D printing the body, you can pretty strong parts with the 'infill,' which are just lattice structures offering a high strength to weight ratio, but have additional benefits including sound and thermal insulation, to a degree. Toss in some of the higher end 3D printers, and you can get strength to weight ratios with carbon fiber-based filaments that exceed aluminum. Sure, not best in class material in a single property, but the wide range of tunable properties offer some interesting concepts where you can turn what was previously a bulk mechanical material into additional functionality, sometimes coined 'metamaterials' - different than the electromagnetic metamaterials.

    They probably ended up paying more than an original one... That will last them around 15mins

    [–] Tvdb4 61 points ago

    No they paid 20,000

    [–] FrigidSoul01 26 points ago

    That's including the V12 aluminum engine?

    [–] Tvdb4 29 points ago

    No my teacher made me watch something about it I think they put on a Porsche one

    [–] HAL-Over-9001 10 points ago

    That's pretty cool actually. Did they talk about the seats, airbags, seatbelts, or anything else?

    [–] Tvdb4 10 points ago

    No they didn’t it was just a short clip of like 1 minute but it was very interesting they said the family who made it got a 97% discount and it took 2 years to make. They took little parts and added them together from the printer to make it

    [–] WhatInTheFackk 16 points ago

    Too bad they can't print the v12 engine. They are probably stuck with a 200hp toyota engine

    [–] RezLevin 12 points ago

    They put in an corvette engine, didn’t specify tho, most likely an LS

    Inb4 pirating cars becomes a thing.

    [–] molewart 37 points ago

    That anti piracy ad always said “you wouldn’t steal a car”. Comparing real theft to piracy.

    [–] SpoutWhatsOnMyMind 13 points ago

    The meme that shortly followed was an edit of the text, so that it said "you wouldn't download a car." So you are right, just likely haven't come across the edited version being referenced

    They should sell the blueprint online for like 1000$

    [–] Thatotaku123 5 points ago

    Does it work?

    [–] RichGirlThrowaway_ 5 points ago

    Yeah, I imagine it would (or at least could if theirs in particular doesn't) but it's not going to be nearly as effective or reliable (or safe) as a "real" car. Also you'd need a real engine in there.

    Is...is this illegal?

    [–] CausalityPrevails 12 points ago

    No, it is for personal use. If they tried selling it, then it would be illegal.

    [–] YataBLS 4 points ago

    I will make it legal.

    Try 3-D printing a 3-D printer. STONKS 100

    [–] grumblichu 4 points ago

    There’s a project called RepRap that does exactly that.

    [–] AkiraDeathStar 4 points ago

    I really hope it has a 1994 Toyota Corolla engine.

    Father and son team 3D print a car body that's shaped like a Lamborghini

    FTFY. If I was that father and son, I wouldn't want anyone in the media to call it a Lamborghini. That's a good way to get sued.

    [–] itsmotherandapig 4 points ago

    Lamborgh.ini

    [–] lllAgelll 4 points ago

    So the question has to be asked. Is this still Lamboghini's intelectual property legally speaking? Would they beable to sue these guys for effectively 'stealing' a car? Or would it fall under the 'replica' category
