I’m sure you’ve all woken up in the morning, about to get started on your next 3D printing project, when you hear a rumble in your stomach. “Uh oh,” you mumble to yourself. “I better calm this rumbling down before my stomach acids eat through the lining of my tummy.”
Ok, maybe I got a bit carried away there… Regardless, you happen to find that your wife is already cooking herself and your 9 kids breakfast, using all 4 burners of the stove. This may seem like an incredibly insurmountable problem, but I’m here to tell you, “It’s not!”
Our friends at 3D Modular Systems, a company we covered just this last week when they launched their Scaler M and Scaler XL modular 3D printers on Kickstarter, have put together a short and simple ‘How To’ video showing us all how to cook a fried egg using a pan and a Scaler 3D printer (or any 3D printer with a heated build platform). Below are the steps you must follow:
- Preheat the heat bed to at least 110°C (will take approximately 3 minutes).
- Place a pan on top of heat bed until it reaches a temperature of approximately 100°C (will take approximately 10-15 minutes).
- Crack the egg into the pan, and cook to desired firmness (place a little butter in the pan prior to frying if desired).
- Season the egg to your liking.
- Eat the egg in front of your wife as she looks at you perplexed, asking where you got it.
- Begin your 3D printing project approximately 20 minutes late, but with a much more satisfied stomach.
Clearly this was more of a joke then a serious ‘How to’ video, which you can watch at the top of this page. With that said, it was obviously a pretty clever promotional tactic, as we just wrote an entire pointless article about it. For those interested in either the Scaler M or Scaler XL 3D printers by 3D Modular Systems, they are available via Kickstarter starting at $738 and $965 respectively. Let us know if you have backed this project or perhaps tried cooking an egg on your printer in the 3D Printing & Fried Eggs forum thread on 3DPB.com.
