This is why these things exist right now. Advanced Nerdery.

How soon before the Feds shut it down?

The government will shut that site down!

So there !!

I hope the price of these things drops as quickly as blueray players did. Once a good printer drops below $700 or so, I'm definitely going to pick one up.

I'm in favor of 3D printing to produce prototypes or one off works of art but I'm more in favor of digitizing everything and reducing the number of objects actually owned.

Although you'd have a hard time believing that if you looked in my gym bag, which has 1.5 changes of clothes, swim trunks,  a bottle of conditioner, two combs, at least two towels, a bottle of beard oil, my JayBird headphones, two tubes of racquetballs and my racquet. And I'll be adding specialized court shoes to that list if I find a pair I like.

Me too but it would only work if you could recover the material of an object when you are done with it. Make a bunch of cups for a party and melt them back down again to reuse the material when you're done with them. Otherwise you end up with even more disposable goods than we have now.

IIRC, a lot of printers use ABS recyclable plastics. Whether or not the end users can recycle them.... may not be too hard.

but only use HP brand plastic cartridges.

you wouldn't want to ruin your 3d printer!

Shapeways?
*checks*
Yep, Shapeways. I had just seen this set when browsing their website. It doesn't look like they've hollowed anything out too well to take advantage of material savings.

It's dangerous to go alone, I'll need to take one of those.

Yeah, but then you'll have to buy cartridges every month or so.

And you will have to clean and align the printer heads every other week.

Can I buy these with BitRupees?
 
2013-05-10 02:22:12 PM  
Ok, now that's cool

I will not trust my life to a sword that may explode in my hand when I attempt to stab an Octorok

If it ever becomes economical to have one of those things all I can say to the collectable 80s/90s toy sellers is 'suck it'.

I was wondering what the red and blue squarish looking pieces are, apparently they're supposed to be the red and blue potions respectively. I would have thought it wouldn't be that difficult to print out the flask shape.

/I wonder if they're going to attempt printing the fairy.

I just, i just, umm, don't understand 3d printers. I thought it was an inside joke when i first heard people talking about them, like a snipe hunt.

Would one of these things be able to create a functional rock em sock em boxing game, following on your collectible toy idea? Or a lite brite? Would they work or just look like the things they are supposed to be?

It could probably print the individual pieces, but you'd have to assemble the pieces together.

Just be sure to keep Fillion away from your toys.

For a sense of scale, according to his website the swords are 4 inches long.
