:behold: Gentlemen, behold! Fabricated Corn!

NASA has been using machines like these so that tools can be created in galaxies, far, far away. Now that the consumer market is getting involved, the pirate industry just became that much more expansive.

I can't wait for bioengineers to get something like this and attempt to make living material and organisms.  Also, if it could be used to make organs and such, it would be every hospital's new favorite machine.

I hope the final consumer version 100 years from now will be compatible with something like spore so that one could make a crazy pet to kill your neighbors

That dragon is from a far more expensive piece of equipment. If it could be made affordable in half the time, you'd be about ready to return to childhood, and game till you croak, I suppose.

The home-sized 3D printer also doesn't seem to have fine enough tools to do the kind of miniature work that I think most players have come to expect, even if you could give it a really fine nozzle plastic dispenser.

Also, there's the whole economics of scale thing. It's cheaper to make a lot of identical things on a dedicated setup to make one unique thing on something fancy. Which doesn't much matter when things are really, really cheap. Printing 2D stuff on personal printers is way more expensive per page than having assloads of copies made by a big press, but it's economical and necessary enough to be worth while. This still has to become way the hell cheaper, and there's still no clear, pressing need for most people to have such a thing.

Gentlemen, behold! Wings on Corn!

Wonder how updraft is handled. If it maintains well, then we have a new form of urban transportation. And plenty of recreations of the first pages of Kick-Ass #1 to follow.

and even WITH A 3d printer that could match the detail of current miniatures, it's still cheaper than buying from games workshop.

I'm still not really sure what the difference between Real Life and Real World is, but if this needs to be moved apologies for the misthreading.

Turns out, the Earth is crying.

Probably because of something that you did.
