    Re: Paint Your Own "Black Hole" with Vantablack!

    Can't wait for printing technology to utilize nano tubes. That black would make prints look amazing, could you imagine the possibilities???

    A friend of mine has been discussing building a solar air heater, and this would be ideal for attracting the maximum amount of solar energy.
    It's probably $100 a can though. =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    Okay, I crunched some numbers.
    Average cost of spray paint can 6$
    4oz of paint in a spray can at a cost of .25c
    24X markup
    Couldn't find Vantablack 2 price but,
    Nano tubes cost about 1000$ a pound for industrial materials.
    Wild guess, vantablack 2 is about 10x more
    That means at the same paint can markup of 24X, the same amount of Vantablack to paint ratio, a can of Vantablack spray paint would cost about 60,000$ dollars right now.




    It's obviously a slow day here.
