sex toys? SEX TOYS!? high tech materials technology and some of the most advanced computer aided design software ever developed and you people use it to create SEX TOYS!?

Yeah, like using new, cool technology to make something sex related is totally without precedent. Sure.

It was only a matter of time.

It is going to be real interesting as time goes on with 3D printing and what will be attempted to be regulated.

I like this story of a guy who had a pricey stroller that broke. The company wanted $250 for the busted part and he took the part on the other side, scanned it, and had it printed for $25.

Nothing is off limits right now as far as I can tell. I wonder if some kind of regulation is going to come down requiring these 3D printers to help prevent some kind of fraud like current scanners/printers do with currency, I cannot imagine how they would even begin to regulate it though. I know people have discussed building a gun from a 3D printer...let me tell you, the amount of pressure created in the chamber would blow that thing apart...I really do not think that it will be an issue, but that certainly wont stop some congress critter from attempting to legislate on it.

if I could afford one, I'd sure as hell buy myself a 3D printer and start looking for ways to make money off it. just making knock off 40k minis and model kits would keep me in beer money from all my friends.

more like a third. As a species, we like killing things slightly more than we like trying to have sex with them. of course, if we were to ever combine sex AND mass destruction into one nice shiny package, our species would be doomed to extinction in about 48 hours.

They are much cheaper than 5k if you are not afraid of a screw driver and the words : Some assembly required. The http://reprap.org/ community is a good start. You can get the kit for as little as 500 from one of the suppliers and about 1300 if you want them to put it together for you. I'm going for the cheaper kit so I can hack it and the included software to my liking.

You only need to make the receiver in your 3D printer. The chamber, barrel, trigger, springs, stocks, bolt, extractor, etc. are unregulated parts.

People have been making polymer AR-15 lowers for years now... and people HAVE done it with a 3D printer already.

I can't recall the company our product bit I'm making a habit of posting stuff without citation for the hell of it. Anyway,I heard of a company offering the option to print your own replacement parts free instead of ordering them. Makes good business sense if 3D printing becomes common. Putting a file on a website is a lot cheaper than maintaining a stock of replacement parts or dealing with manufacture and shipping. It also frees them to use manufacturing resources to push new products.

In history almost every media type device was made popular by sexy use. Polaroid camera, VHS tapes, home video tape camera, DVDs, home computers, consumer internet, digital photography, texting, chatrooms etc-- Sex was the unspoken 'killer app'.

I thought about getting into minis but it's still expensive to start up. But there are really uninteresting sets on kick starter that have gotten thousands and thousands of dollars.

That's all fine until I pursue copyrights on the code that generates every gear and screw for every downloaded part, and you have to pay me a tithe to use it, a la DRM.

You wait, it's coming. Just like the users of these sex toys.

That right there would have almost every friend I know and some casual gaming acquaintances throwing spare cash at me. I mean hell, I could charge them 5 bucks per model on most 40k minis and I'd still be giving a discount vs GW.

3D printing just seems ultra sexy for the mini wargame hobby person as a whole and thats not getting into the applications mentioned...

Dammit, I'm trying to figure out how to use it. I used to work at an adult video store and I don't recall seeing any toys shaped like that. I would say it's for self double penetration but that handle(?) Is in the wrong place for that.

There wasn't any scale given in the image and I thought it might be a penile device for pain play (compressing the metal against some part of the shaftk cushioned by the plastic on the other side) but looking at it again it has a head rather than a cushion.

Obviously there has been greater innovation than I thought in insertables.
