>>547846I guess this is meant to be some kind of "shit post"? That's not really what this board is about though.For anyone else who came across this strange post, I'd just like to remind you that if you have a 3d printer and want models to print, you can find millions of them for free on yobi3d, deviantart, sketchfab, blendswap, turbosquid, video game model ripping sites (themodelsresource) and of course make your own.
>buys tractor>doesn't into agriculture>blames the weatherok.
>>547846Contact the artist and ask them you'll pay for just stl file.
>>547976>mmm im sorry this board is not about "shit post" as you would sayfugoff everyone is allowed to post whatever the fuck they want as long as its /3/ related and follows blueboard rulesfag
>>550029>everyone is allowed to post whatever the fuck they want That doesn't make it any less of a shit post
>>550029it really isn't about shitposts, no one gave a shit about the thread until you bumped it after two weeks to voice your liberal opinion
>>547846Capitalism is great, isn't it? It poisons everything.
>>550029everyone is allowed to post whatever they want, but it doesn't mean they should.I would rather read 20 quality posts in a day than 500 shitposts.I'd browse /v/ if I just wanted to see idiots smash their dick on the keyboard.
>>550032There would be no 3D printers without it
>>547981THIS! For fucks sake this!>>547846You are a blind man buying videos.You are deaf man buying CDs.You are a quadruple amputee buying gloves and socks.IF YOU CAN'T DESIGN 3D THEN YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO COMPLAIN ABOUT PAYING SOMEONE ELSE FOR SOMETHING YOU CAN'T DO.This is the #1 most stupid thing about 3Dprinters. The ENTITLEMENT of the incapable who demand that the capable give them free stuff. This isn't socialism (in socialism you have no 3Dprinters, and no designers).
>>547999I doubt the artist will sell the stl to a stranger. They'll probably think you're trying to make money off of their stuff.
>>547846go to model on Shapeways, click the cube which is to see it in 3d, use ninjaripper, profit?
>>550050Yes goy, make claims you cannot possibly prove without the ability to traverse alternate timelines, all to defend the jew.
>have my own kitchen oven>see cool bread on bakeways that i want to try baking>bakery expects me to pay obscene prices for it's baked bread that they want to mail you (including shipping and handling of course)>scumbag faggot baker provide no way to get the raw pastry so I can bake my ownWHY THE FUCK DID THIS HOBBY HAVE TO BE POISONED FROM IT'S VERY INCEPTION BY FUCKING MIDDLEMEN WHO WANT TO NICKLE AND DIME MEI ALREADY HAVE THE OVEN YOU FUCKS
>>550642/leftypol/ pls go
>buys 3d printer>can't 3d modelLol/10 kys
>>551159you can pretty much buy 3D models everywhere.or, you can ask someone to model for you
>BAHH BAHHH>I WANT FREE STUFF !!!!>I WANT YOUR STUFF!!! I WANT IT NOW !!!>GIB PLS !!!!! NOW !!!fuck yourself op, you commie piece of shitWant models? Contact the artist and pay him for it, and be ready to pay what its worth and not some retailer pennies.
>>551172Sure, and then you're stuck to what's online or rely on someone to do what you want, which will have cost money, time and several loops, and might not even be optimized for 3d printing in the endSo yeah, not the best money investment or fun hobby to pick if you don't model. The printing part itself is boring af, so your true hobby will be electronics for building the printer, or post processing the parts, unless you consider sitting still watching a machine work alone a hobby>source: 3000+h of 3d printing
>>5511763d printing is pretty popular nowdaysyou can simply ask the artist to give you print ready model.the guys that make the action figures (weta workshop,iHaze toys etc) know exactly what goes in a printed model
>>547846Shapeways is not Thingiverse. The whole point of that website is to sell 3d prints, not share STLs freely.
