I think the biggest negative about 3D printing is the time it takes to clean up
or finish a print. Most people think you just upload the file, turn the printer
on and go. A lot depends on how fine a line/resolution/layer you set up to
print, which also affects print time substantially. Default settings in most of
the printing software is pretty rough, and if you don’t tune it, you’ll spend a
lot of time filing and trimming the finished product because it’s so rough.
I think there is quite a learning curve to make it work well too. I
subscribe to another list that has gravitated to 3D printing from the
original intent (metal working) and have read a lot of posts by people
trying to figure out how to make the printers work well enough to
produce useful parts or items.
