This week we cover 10 common 3D printer myths and misconceptions, talk about the future of Alan Moore, and even get into 3D printing law and copyright. Lots covered, which should be some good food for thought.
I would like to take Victor Berggren again for the music. It really is excellent, and I hope you enjoy your headset when it arrives. It is estimated that it will get to you here in a week or two, it just depends on customs.
Thank you all for listening and for your support. Those that have not done so please take a moment to follow us on:

Since my motherboard died, I have been forced to use my work laptop to do most of my work. It has also been necessary to borrow my wife’s computer to try and get access to my hard drive. Thankfully both of our computers were identical, so booting from my hard drive on her computer will not result in driver / chipset issues. I feel like I am closer, but it takes a while. While I have been out of the PC repair game for some time, thankfully the concepts remain the same. Heck even the utilities are mostly the same, only updated to adapt to the new technologies. My biggest challenge was deciding if I wanted an LGA 1511 or LGA 2011 CPU. The LGA 2011 won out. So, here on Monday I should be ordering my new hardware (motherboard, RAM, CPU and CPU cooler, power supply, and SSD) from Amazon, and I should have them by Wednesday if all goes as planned. I have been getting the rest of the rebuild prepped in the meantime. I have pulled all the old hardware out of my case, it is now sitting on my workbench, sad and alone. Don’t worry little fella, you will have some new tenants soon.
At this time, it looks like I will be 3d printing until late next week with any luck, but I may start twitch streaming my prints live after that time. I will need to pick up a new camera, but I have a line on those already. Stay tuned.
Thank you everyone for your support, and thanks for stopping by.

First let me start by saying 'Welcome to all the new listeners'. This week we have a treat for you in the form or a longer run time! This weeks episode clocks in at just under 2 hours. You would figure that we cover all the things, be we still managed to miss something!
The thing we mess was a well deserved thank listener Bobby Willhite for contacting us and letting us know about the original use of the milk based 3d scanner. We thought that is was wonderful because its root actually lie in gaming.
While we go over this in the podcast, we have been working on revising the Print of the Month, and should be able to reveal it next week if everything goes well.
Besides that, there has also been talk about moving the release day to Monday rather than Friday. This is a while 4 days sooner, which means some of the things we talk about will still be relevant! ;)
This weeks image is by DimaDerzhavin. It looks so awesome and we think really goes with the episodes title.
