3D printing uses other than circumventing gun regulations …


Saw this yesterday via Mashable (http://mashable.com/2013/05/15/3d-printed-star-wars-stormtrooper/). Living near the rats nest it’s pretty neat as a nerd when they do the summer Star Wars fest.

They’ve had similar products at Disney where you can design your own composite plastic souvenir.

But my little geeky brain went two steps beyond making yourself a storm trooper figurine. See, I know some folks who cosplay … Can you imagine 3D printing your own armor? Or making yourself C-3PO? Creating your kid an R2 unit?

The possibilities are endless. The crafter in me is now thinking of all the awesome embellishments that could be made.

Yeah, I know the printers aren’t cheap. You’d have to sell hat you make to break even a then there are trademark and copyright protections to consider.

But hot damn, think of all the fun it could be…
