Okay this technology (If it's real), sounds quite promising.

SAPVoice: 10 Ways 3D Printing Is Changing The World

Apparently it's called '3d printing', and you can make whatever you want through a printer. Is that how it works?

If its true, I'm totally getting this (Apparently you can print this whole thing just by downloading this little file!).

If anyone and I mean anyone is into this, please share. If this is true then we are heading towards something amazing really.

3-D printing is a reality and almost cheap enough for hobby use. Our local public library has one that people can use.

Some guy in the USA printed a gun last year...supposedly it worked but only for one or two shots as it was made of plastic.

There are industrial 3-D printers that can print metal objects.

The Economist's Technology Quarterly edition last week had several articles on new materials and the use of 3-D printers to make complex things.

Consumer grade 3D printers have been available for a while now and some are ~$1000. You may be tempted, but sending your shape to an online service like Shapeways would let you take advantage of much higher precision machines that offer a variety of material types and they can produce small parts for just a few dollars.
