See link for a cartoony drawing of a knife. I know what my hand is doing drawing those lines - exagerating the curves, so shouldn't someone be able to figure out the math and then design all kinds of stuff in 3D with those kind of lines and then print out over-exagerated looking cartoon stuff? Cartoon cars would be especially cool. Where are all the swoopy cars now that we have 3D computer design?

like this car looks like it is going to be but is not upon turning it around http://cache.jalopn...02/Devaux_Coupe.jpg

       It would seem 3-D printers have replaced hydrogen as the new HB go-to fix-all.

       Fix-all considered harmful.   

       (If that's a criticism, it's an unjust one. Nothing being fixed, here, no problem being solved. Just esthetics.   

       Extending the idea, a bit, this is an idea partially to automate industrial design. The curve'd get more and more exagerated with each model-year, culminating in, oh Art Nouveau, or 1950s tailfins, or something. When that was old hat, the 3D printers'd be reprogrammed angular, until that went out of style, and so on.)

       Not a criticism, just a remark on the number of 3D-printer ideas cropping up lately, and how happy I am that they seem to be supplanting those involving ill-considered use of hydrogen in some manner (inadvisable use, I'm all for; I just want some thought put into it).   

       More influence of cartoons on real life, I generally approve of. I'm reserving my bun until the idea matures a bit.
