It's all fun and games until your printed car kidnaps you to an underwater commune where you're forced into a decade-long orgy.

Aidan: Shapeways would be so farking cool once it got past doing gewgaws and dice -- even if they are really nice dice.

Shapeways is on the precipice of putting a world of hurt on Games Workshop's bottom line.

prjindigo: If I could download a car I'd just design it from the ground up on my own computer... its not rocket science.

Why not download an open source car?

I think as it becomes a more common practice among kit-car guys to either buy 3d printers or buy parts from printing shops, more kinds of car designs will become available on the kit market. Among those will also be free models (Well, free as in you won't be infringing any copyrights. You'd still be on the hook for the parts).
Making a decent car may not be rocket surgery, but you'd still benefit from having semi-professionals helping you.

Like all people in an office setting, I would just stay half an hour late and do all my printing with the company's machine.
