Now... this is what really wows me... not some new smartphone version X+1. :)

Imagine... printing copies of yourself within the privacy of your own home... :)

Looks like they just pull the plug on this in the usa. We are starting to see the scary part of this innovation.

Where did you read about this?

I believe only the firearms design was pulled off the web (but not before it was downloaded over 100,000 times). 3D printing should be here to stay.

My bad. Is it only the firearms design?
Nonetheless, it's scary how one can abuse it.

That's what I understand.

3D printing is here to stay, been available commercially for a few years now, and getting cheaper too. Not possible to 'pull the plug' on this one.

Cheers.
