Andrew, his kids, and the Porsche Speedster

Here at the support desk, we like to ask our customers what they’re going to be using their MakerBots for, and every once in awhile, you get a fantastic answer.  I was helping one customer out recently (Andrew) and here’s what he said when I asked him about his plans:

The next things I’m planning on scanning are parts for my classic car (a la Leno), and more importantly, scanning my kids!

Now I am all for scanning your children — after all they’re growing and they won’t be small for very long; I think all of us will be scanning our children very soon (if we’re not already.)  But I have to admit that I was a bit more intrigued by the car stuff.  So that’s what I asked about…to which Andrew replied:

The car I’m printing parts for is attached in this mail (internal door lock parts, plus a few impossible to get bits). I’m scanning one side of the car, mirror, then print, you get the idea.

That’s when he sent this photo of the 356 Speedster.  Well, apparently the Thing-O-Matic isn’t the coolest toy in Andrew’s household, but it gives me a warm feeling inside just knowing that our humble little machines are helping keep something like that in good running order.
