Makerbot Is Letting You 3D Print With Metal, Limestone, And Wood

 

 

 

 

” Makerbot—perhaps the most consumer-friendly of 3D printer manufacturers—is about to go a long way toward turning the tech into something consumers can actually use. Starting late this year, MakerBot is going to let you 3D print with a range of new materials, including composites of limestone, iron, and wood.

  The new PLA filaments are made with composites of the actual material they’re meant to replicate, meaning that what you 3D print doesn’t have to just be a plastic model of what you want. It’s going to look—and feel—a hell of a lot more like the object it’s imitating.”

ObamaCare Will Cost Your Family at Least $20,000

 

 

 

 

” Ok. First. Think about how much you pay for health insurance currently. Now, think about how much you are going to have to pay under the new ObamaCare laws. Well according to a new IRS regulation released, they assume the average family will pay a minimum of $20,000 for their health care plans.

The examples point to families of four and families of five, both of which the IRS expects in its assumptions to pay a minimum of $20,000 per year for a bronze plan.

“The annual national average bronze plan premium for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) is $20,000,” the regulation says.

Bronze will be the lowest tier health-insurance plan available under Obamacare–after Silver, Gold, and Platinum.”

A statue memorializing soldiers who rode into battle in Afghanistan after 9/11 has been placed in front of the World Trade Center PATH station and will be formally dedicated on Friday.

” Commuters streaming out of the PATH train station at the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan on Wednesday morning may have spotted the shrouded newcomer:
a 16-foot-tall sculpture of a Special Operations soldier on horseback. The statue is a memorial to the troops who led the American invasion of Afghanistan in response to the Sept. 11 attacks on the trade center and the Pentagon.

The statue, known as “De Oppresso Liber,” a motto of the Army Special Forces, was hauled to a spot near the PATH station entrance on Vesey Street on Tuesday evening. That will be its temporary home while construction at the trade center continues, said Patrick J. Foye, the executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.”
