Hey, I just found out the future started yesterday. Heureka. I'm talking about designing and printing out 3D models. It's still pretty expensive, but it was the same with VHS, CD and DVD. The quality of the material is varying a lot, the common plastic type isn't perfect yet. They are somewhat fragile if you twist or bend them too much. So it's probably not ideal if you're planning to design toys for the brats. Or you're sure your brats are smart enough and don't break 'em.
OK, you know what. You should try it anyways even if the latter isn't the case!
That's the stuff a coworker was printing out. Some of the models actually felt pretty rigid.
A chess figure would cost roundabout $15. And they're hollow.
This one broke easy. It's too thin. Just like my sanity.
Material close up. Neat stuff. Anyways there's this one page
selling these self-designed thingies.
You can choose from either steel, alumide, glass and (colored) plastic. I just figured out they could
use some business competition. there's no other big companies offering this stuff, yet. Who's it
gonna be? Maybe a whale fantastique
And heeere is just another classic piece of art mixed with a chimpanzee painting.
