    A friend had a crown procedure yesterday - all in one day. Mine last year, got the tooth ready, got a temporary, and week later the permanent. Sort of the opposite of 3d printing in her dentists office. Computer controlled CNC from her scan.

    That's pretty cool.

    But "growing" objects, especially complex objects, quickly is very cool.

    This is the world I work in. It's fast. Cool. Labs still make a better product by far. But labs will be losing a lot of buisness in the near future, when this technology improves.
    In the orthodontist world, brackets and wires are losing a lot of ground to Invisalign.
    The world is changing in a feveriuos pace.

    If spell check ain't underlining, I'm launching the email or text or nwfa replys.
    But while we are grading, what's a Hot "Dam"?

    No grading, it actually shows up on Google, so it's a real word. "Hot dam"- a quaint expression often used when someone is pleasantly overly excited.

    I was getting bored and thought I knew everything, then HOT DAM I see a new word to add to my vocabulary. :D

    Cold dam is as appetizing as cold day old french fries you find between the driver's seat and the center console in your car. (hey, I was hungry!) o_O
