This has now exceeded it's shelf life and will not be available again until next year

I managed to find a supplier of Tartan ABS in China.
The supplier says that they are also able to manufacture spotted and striped versions, but only in 3mm. (apparently the spots are too big to fit on the 1.75 mm and the stripes slide off)

I'm assured that the PLA versions will follow and an intriguing Sky-blue Pink that I can't wait to see.

I'm already imagining all the things I can make: Holes for rivets, Sky hooks, Long weights, Left handed screwdrivers, Sharp string, the list is endless...

Shipping will start on the 31st of April.


Place tongue firmly in cheek, and smile.

Any chance of a large net, a load of holes tied together?

3D print me a kilt, dammit!

Looks like this was manufactured somewhere in the Scottish Empire. I love the fun people can have with Gimp. :-)

Today Dimension Printing also introduced a metric adjustable wrench sample part.

sigh Tartan comes from Europe, so it's metric. I don't have a metric machine, so I'll have to wait until this becomes available in plaid.

And here you can get a colour to paint all the other things with a nice surface ;) http://shop.etel-tuning.de/product.php?id_product=38http://shop.etel-tuning.de/pro...

Argh, I hate when the stripes slide off, they get all over everything. I used to have a white cat, now he's a zebra.

Ad I use to have a zebra, but now its a white cat. :/

That's right, you're hours ahead of us Yanks!

+1 on your April Foolery! :)
