Functional 3D-Printed Tape Measure 134

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.

A computer without COBOL and Fortran is like a piece of chocolate cake without ketchup and mustard.
