Quoted from Aurich:
I don't own any games that could use these, but I love seeing properly machined parts instead of 3D printed ones. 3D printing is awesome for certain tasks, and especially rapid proto work, but it's just not really good enough for a lot of final products. So good for you.
Quoted from indypinhead:
I agree...3-D printers are great for certain circumstances, but the surface finish sucks. 3-D printers have taken a lot of work away from me in my normal line of work...(medical prototyping/test equipment).
I agree that the 3d printing industry has made a disruption in machine shop industry. I do agree 3D printing does not work for all finished products, but I do have to tell you Aurich, we have done pretty well with number of final products people continue to be delighted with. A lot of our products would not exist if 3d printing was not available, alternatives can just be too expensive.
