Canadians Create Worlds First 3DPrinted Camper

first_img Prepare To Be Amazed By This Tiny Working Lego PianoPlug a Floppy Drive in to Your Android Phone For a Retro Storage Boost Nine days and hundreds of feet of plastic filament later, a team from Canada has succeeded in creating the world’s first 3D-printed camper. Printing wrapped up last week in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.That’s just a scale model at the top, of course. The real thing is much larger. In fact, it smashed the world record for the largest indoor 3D print. The previous best was a respectable 144 cubic feet. The camper nearly tripled that volume at 507 cubic feet.3D printing a camper gives it a couple major advantages over traditional manufacturing methods. One is that it’s seamless, which greatly reduces the risk of water infiltration. Given how much people generally spend on a camper and how long they plan to own them, there should be plenty of demand for one that’s not as susceptible to mildew and rot.The other big advantage is that this thing is about as customizable as a camper could ever get. As long as your vision can be translated into an STL file for plotting, pretty much anything goes. One that creator Randy Janes is particularly excited about: a hatch in the floor for ice fishing.Hey, there’s no reason you should limit your camper use to the summer months… especially when you really only get two and a half of them a year between the annual thaw and freeze. A camper is a big investment, and Jones clearly believes you should get your money’s worth.There is one significant downside: 3D printing the 500-plus cubic foot camper took about nine days. That’s no problem for a proof-of-concept, but it’s a tad slow for commercialization. Now that the team has proven it’s doable, they can focus on shortening the delivery window.Janes is hopeful that he’ll have the first batch of 3D-printed campers ready for sale before the end of this year.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered 2 Rumored for Release in Late

first_imgStay on target A couple of weeks ago, rumors began circulating around the ol’ internet about a possible remake of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The rumor originally said the game would release in 2019 to coincide with its tenth anniversary. Now, sources say it will actually come out in April of this year. If this turns out to be true, fans will get to play what is arguably the best entry in the franchise a lot sooner than expected. Albeit, without the game’s much beloved multiplayer mode.The rumor comes from Charlie Intel (via LAD Bible), which is knowledgeable about all things related to Call of Duty. Eurogamer has also confirmed the authenticity of the rumors. The game also popped up on a listing for Amazon Italy (via IGN Italia). There, it is slated for a April 30th release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for €19.99 (£17.45 / $24.58). Since $24.95 isn’t a typical price for a game in North America, the price will probably be $29.99.Charlie Intel suggests Raven Software will not develop this remaster. If you recall, it is the studio behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered from 2016. It is unclear who is developing the remaster of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.Aside from the actual remaster, the biggest news to come out of this rumor is that it apparently won’t have multiplayer. This is strange considering how important multiplayer is for modern day Call of Duty titles. If this part of the rumor turns out to be true, it’s safe to say fans will be upset. After all, many in the Call of Duty community believe Modern Warfare 2 has the very best multiplayer in the franchise.April 30 is only a few weeks away so we’ll find out if this rumor is true or not fairly soon. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available. ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’ Trailer Steps Out of the ShadowsNext ‘Call of Duty’ Is Probably ‘Modern Warfare’ center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
