I am sure it will be a good use of YOUR time Glen! "Business is Business" - that's what all the sub-prime mortgage companies, the Detroit auto makers and all those guys on Wall Street said too.

Marshall is correct here.
This forum is for the discussion of RP technology, not to decide how or who
uses it.
We cannot infuse morality, politics, taste, or other restrictions into
technical discussions.
The bomber file may be in bad taste, or maybe someone wants to print one
and blow it up on YouTube.
Some suggest concerns about the porn industry invading the RP-ML.
Too late, Pollyanna, they are here.
Business is business, and parts is parts.
Porn is a huge industry, and they have been adaptors/innovators in RP for
many years.
Those of us marketing the equipment, know this very well.
We record these customers in industry codes for "entertainment", "consumer
products", "recreational products", "medical devices".
An ultra-sound probe looks the same as a dildo to a 3D Printer.
Peek in the window of an adult toy store, forget the products, just look at
the scope of the packaging.
Every bottle, jar, and clamshell package and tooling were prototyped on an
RP machine.
The military and warfare industries have been a big part of the RP-ML
without concern of how they apply the technology.
Let's keep the discussion open, except for blatant advertising.
I think I will print the bomber and burn it in effigy, just to show I
