So, to get a $200 Rodin replica statue (like the ones they sell in the Rodin museum), I only have to spend $2200?

Next we should 3D print out a spaceship to travel to Mars with a crew, and with a 3D printer on the spaceship to 3D print out all the food, water and air they will need on the trip.

That's awesome. Because when I go to a museum, I'm just as happy to see posters and 3D recreations of famous works.  The experience in no way has anything to do with viewing the actual work...

Who would win in a fight? Michelangelo's David or Michelangelo the Teenage Ninja Turtle?

Now you can find out!

I've always been surprised they went with somebody as relatively obscure as Donatello. I guess they just liked the sound, but Caravaggio was more of a badass.

Just as with laser and ink jet printers, the money will be in the cartridges, not the printer itself.

And we'll consume even more.  I remember people saying "Computers will stop the world from cutting down forests for paper!!!" (never mind a lot of wood comes from fields that instead of corn grow trees), and instead paper consumption jumped because we also go the printer along with it and you could print out a copy of that memo you were emailed.

I think tablets may finally have put a dent in paper production.

Anyways, I still want on, just for fun.  I have no delusions I will be 3D printing knickknacks for mass consumption.

I like to imagine QA at the turn of the previous century frantically sending out missives that this whole electricity thing is vastly overblown and that it won't be able to do a fraction of the things that are being claimed for it.

Space Architects Plan 3-D Printed Moon Base

My local library put together a Makerspace with a Makerbot Replicator2.  They don't even charge for using it.

Most cities have maker spaces you can use if you are interested.

When the HP LaserJet 4 debuted, it retailed for about $1800.  Just to print in 2 dimensions.

3D printing isn't there yet, but consider how far 2D printing has come in just a couple of decades.

Even good museums often put reproductions on display. Not everybody can be the British Museum. There are only so many originals out there. Also, when talking about things like architecture, it's generally better to reproduce the architecture than it is to rip it off the building- seeing pieces of the Parthenon in London is more depressing than you'd think.

My wife is into dollhousing.  I told her a couple years ago, this whole 3D printing thing will completely turn miniatures inside out.  Watch and see.  It wasn't too long after that, that she came home with a figure for a dollhouse.  Generally they're crudely-made "dolls" that don't look at all real.  This one was 3D-printed, and is the perfect depiction of a grumpy, disheveled, frowning old man possible.  It was love at first sight.

I just had another brainwave the other day.  There will be a trend of people 3D printing characters and props from iconic movie scenes so they can recreate them in miniature.

Ever buy a poster of an artwork in a museum gift shop? Or a miniature replica of a statue?

t3knomanser: Even good museums often put reproductions on display.


Uh, no they don't. At least not art museums. Various places with historical artifacts and lots of fading documents, yes.

If you see a painting billed as a Monet and it is not a Monet, the museum you are at is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a good museum. If the real art isn't available, good museums hang something else in its place or hang a sign saying, "out for conservation".

Well, that's only if you want a Rodin statue.  You could 3-D print a giant black cock of equal volume (or fifty smaller black cocks of equal total volume) for that price.  It's all about choice.

You can use a 3D printer to make replicas of statues that are not popular enough to warrant mass production.

I once saw a small bronze statue in the Boston MFA titled, I thought, "Small Triumphant Venus".  I cannot find it any mention of it on google, so it must be kind of obscure.  But it would be cool to be able to own a copy of it--not one of the famous statues of all time, just a nude with an attitude.

Begoggle: Does the QA team ever say anything intelligent?

Yes.  They say, "Boss, I don't think this is ready for prime-time.  If you want to release it in its current state, I and my team take no responsibility."

In theory, if you're hand with a knife and can afford to buy and pain Warhammer minis, you can ALREADY make your own custom minis. It's easier to learn metal casting than it is to get a fabricator up and running and write a decent drafting program.

There are lots of tools that will let you make 3d objects in a computer much easier then by making them out of clay. Like the "Undo" tool.

There is certainly an allure for warhammer people to have a 3d printer that you could use to make a positive, then make a mold and cast lead minis.

The problem is that anything under $5,000 in the 3d printer market just isn't going to do what you want without wasting tons of time and money.

But I guess if you are into warhammer, you are into wasting tons of time, so a 3d printer might be perfect.

Only $5,000 to print an army for Warhammer? Wow that's a much better price than the actual figures.
