It actually prints out an actual item. For the Iron Man suit, it was designed in the computer then printed on our printer and They were able to reach into the printer and take the suit out and try it on just like that (after some minor cleaning).
I have seen 3D printers in action and they are definitely amazing. Since James is into CAD we were able to tour a great facility in Florence/Darlington, SC. We saw some truly amazing things there, including the 3D printers (And they were almost low-tech compared to some of the things they had!). We have several samples from companies that sell the machines. It is amazing what they can do.

I remember discussing this stuff with James when we had the pleasure of meeting your two. I loved talking about it with him because he understood all about the technology.

He wanted to grab that brain gear and run! They had one at the place in Darlington too. One of the things I really liked there was a regular looking chess piece. It looked like an ordinary rook/castle, but when you looked down through the top there was a tiny, very intricate spiral staircase going all the way down.

I have received so much good advice over the years that I don't think I could pick the best. This one is a bit ubiquitous so I am not sure who I learned it from first, but the one I will use for this post is "Don't judge a book by its cover". I just recently taught that one to my daughter. I think, especially in todays climate it is more important than ever.

1. If you could spend a week in the past, where and when would it be?

2. What is the best thing you ever ate?

3.Who do you look to for advice?
