Yeah, I think either PLA or ABS for the most part are fine for a fob for the majority of people. I never know what kind of chemicals I could have on my hands or in my clothes

Mine is getting good at looking like a Japanese garden. Ran it through the carwash last week to knock off all the moss.

I don`t know about PLA, but there`s nothing like some solvent to melt your ABS into a cloth.

I think it is more fun when you get some glycol based fluid on it and it starts spider webbing. ABS is kind of a bastard material. It has some great properties along with some bad ones.

Ford wanted to patent driverless crowd control but Elon got the jump on that nugget.

I mean, electric cars can pretty much get there, if they're done right - because you don't need to use any mechanical means of slowing the car at all. SOME mechanical brakes are worth having, to be sure...

Test out Key fob prototype v4.7. Put it in my pocket & forget about it. Case is tight enough that it doesnít separate.

Great. You used a 3-D printer to make an eraser.

The memes are even worse for the in-house training for one of those companies... Don't ask me how I know.

The ability to have fake noises on electric is one thing. The ability to remotely rev your ICE ĎStang is a totally different matter.
