    We have one of these at work so the engineers can make actual parts to see if they will work before making the actual piece. It's phenomenal! It can create all moving parts, interwined with gears that are linked within each other that turn dependantly upon each other. It's great!

    That would definitely change the dynamics of making copies of my butt.

    On a serious note, pretty awesome! Not what I was expecting.

    On to "replacement" organs on a mesh of organic material...

    Sure, times keep getting worse everyday (at leas as far as technology is concerned)

    I have an artist friend who does sculpting on his computer, sends the file to a 3D 'printery' where the sculpture is rendered in some sort of plastic. It is truly amazing! Can't wait for the home version.

    Iconoclast, who makes your 3D printers?

    It's not a "printer", it's a molding machine!

    W e use this technology in the Architecture department at my university, although there's no one in real life that can afford to build this for real in this current economic climate.
