A 3D printer was used to extend someone's life?  Somewhere out there a sterilized keyboard is being broken into tiny little pieces before getting shot into space.

This is why 3D printers need to be banned.  Not only could they print a next to useless gun for 10 times the price of a good one, but they could be used to practice medicine without a license.   In a school setting they could be used to produce religious symbols and in a religious setting they could be used to make dildos.  Ban them now before it's too late.

It could have been manufactured in many other ways, so this is just buzzword whoring for funding purposes.

It is amazing how many people seem to have a sudden interest in manufacturing and rapid prototyping methods. Would it have been as popular if it had been named "crappy plastic layered deposition"?
