First time accepted submitter Trep (366) writes "I thought Slashdot readers might be interested in seeing how my friend is slowly building a 3D printed toolbox. He's created a fully functional tape measure which is 3D printed as a single assembly, to follow up on his 3D printed dial calipers. This is a pretty novel design, with a lot of moving parts that come out of the printer completely assembled!"

    You've had decades to go from 1-59. Now we're at the 60, and you're still convinced that we're weeks away from Star Trek. The required ignorance of how the world works is astounding.

In case of injury notify your superior immediately. He'll kiss it and make it better.
