Brutus, the 3D Pen

I have a dead blue 3d pen that I will contribute for organ transplants for Bruce.

Think I have one of those 3D pens sitting around somewhere that was never really used. Pretty sure it works. Do you want it as a donation?

Yes please! That would be great. Thank you!!

We’ll still attempt to fix Brutus, cuz learning experience, but having one that works would be really nice.

Does yours already have a name, or shall we meet it and name it?

Once I release him from whatever dark closet he’s sitting in, he’d probably love a name.

Although I have been told that you should never anthropomorphize electronic devices, because they really don’t like it :wink:

I want to joke that I thought most pens are 3D. Do I need to call my pens “Bic, the 2D Pen”? :sweat_smile:

I have a picture of a pen, is it a 1D pen?

I plugged it in, and it seems to work. It was able to melt PLA filament, and its display shows the correct temperature.

Interesting. Thanks Eric. I did that last week and it didn’t work.

Next time we’re in the lab together, you’ll have to show me your magic.

Well, they’ve never told me they don’t like it, so name them we must. :rofl::rofl:

I would say yes, but what about the shadow? Doesn’t that make it…4d?

The purposeful misunderstanding of dimensions is hurting my brain here.

picture of pen, 2d representation,

Bic, 3d object that is used to make 2d representations.

Bruce, 3d object that is used to make 3d representations

Obhathrh’itraxz 5d object that is used to make 4d representations

Ah but the 3d pen is actually 4d because how fast you draw is key. So a 4d pen draws in 3d, the 3d pen draws in 2d so obviously the 2d pen draws in 1d and the 1d pen in 0d and the 0d pen in -2,147,483,648d.

Time is an illusion, tea time doublely so

I know you were referencing Douglas Adams, but you said tea, and my brain went here

This taught me SOOO much about physics

Time might be an illusion, but tea time is not. Tea time is the only constant in the universe. :coffee::coffee::teapot::teapot:

Relativeisticly, both are correct depending on where you sit about it.

@Kez I found it! I’ll bring it up on Tuesday.

And in the same box there was this button from Bluebird Arthouse. How about that for nostalgia!

No problem. Think I have to fill out a donation form or something? Maybe? Not real sure how it works.
