true not immediately liquid, it doesn't have a true melting point but goes more and more to jelly.

well we can talk about nylon intake manifolds, Ford made them for quite a few years but customers found they'd crack. So Ford replaced them with one that had aluminum in a few strategic places. cost reduced crap, that's what our civilization is all about.

You can just give the prototyping shop a file, don't need to make a plastic model.

As for making enclosure for abs plastic thing that broke, that's largely nonsense. The cost comparison for just ordering normal molded replacement vs. the time to CMM out and print a thing is enormous. Try making even a "skin" for your cell phone and get back to me.

I have to use IE on windows every fucking working day, because certain "enterprise" vendors only make management shit (with flash, of course) that runs on windows. And what's funny is these companies products either use open source OS or core open source services on their products, without fail.

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.

Working...
