It is frequently stated that some politicians think they are God, but what about Moses? The UK Labour Party leader, Ed Miliband, has recently raised some eyebrows in an interesting, rather biblical, move that has surely secured him attention as the UK’s election nears. Miliband has commissioned a giant stone tablet that he plans to inscribe with the Labour Party’s six pledges, and he plans to place that tablet in Downing Street’s rose garden if he gets elected as the country’s next Prime Minister on May 8th.
Well, the team at CEL Robox, which micro manufactures stylish and compact desktop 3D printers, has decided to have a little fun with Miliband’s concept of a stone tablet with political pledges. Yes, you guessed it, they have 3D printed an alternative to the stone tablet that Miliband can enjoy on his office desk — instead of the massive one that he plans to erect in the garden at Number 10.
The six pledges that constitute the Labour Party platform this time around are easy enough to understand:
- A strong economic foundation
- Higher living standards for working families
- An NHS (National Health System) with the time to care
- Controls on immigration
- A country where the next generation can do better than the last
- Homes to buy and action on rents
In fact, these are all ideas that will emerge as we witness our own presidential campaign unfold here in the United States. It seems that the people at CEL Robox took less exception with the ideas in the Labour pledges and more of an exception with how “Old Testament” the concept of a stone tablet in the garden felt. What is he, Moses, or a political leader?
It also appears CEL Robox doesn’t want Miliband supporters to have all the fun when it comes to 3D printing pledges. The company has also made available printed pledges for the other two top candidates, David Cameron (Conservatives) and Nick Clegg (Liberal Democrats). Since political pledges seem to change with the wind, the company has also designed their own version of a “tablet” — albeit much more compact — so you can add your very own pledges onto them as well. You can download the printed pledges from Tinkercad here, choosing your favorite candidate or all three.
With the CEL Robox 3D printer, the 3D printing game is definitely modernized; this machine earned its reputation as the first plug-and-print 3D printer for the home. It has a dual-head print nozzle (which means that one nozzle can print in detail while the other fills in larger areas at higher speeds), and it has a stop-start function for multi-color 3D printing by allowing users to pause and print part-way through and swap filament. The printer also features “intelligent reels” that tell the printer what material has been loaded.
Speaking of intelligence, it won’t be long before the UK will vote in what appears to be a very close race where no party appears to have an overall majority: who will it be for you if you are voting in this important election? And if you aren’t clear on what the candidates stand for, the team at CEL Robox can certainly help you out with its 3D printed, multi-colored political pledge tablet that move us squarely from biblical times and into the 21st century. You can even customize the tablets to reflect your own commitments, like, “Do More 3D Printing.” Let us know what your tablet will say in the 3D Printed Political Tablets forum thread at 3DPB.com.
