Hehehe that would have been a good one - you show up one day and there's nothing in the office but empty cooking pots and bathtubs :D

I would be an interesting print. You could easily make your own soap moulds!

Excellent :D

"Now that you have a 3D printer and can print *anything*, what's your plan?"

"Make a chocolate impression of my brain and eat it, of course!"

"Of course..."

hehehhe

I read that as "bog roll" first time :roll:

A few days ago I got a massively hint-hint-nudge-nudge email from my sibling referring to this article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/artic ... shion.html

Apparently it was the only way they could make these things seem useful to women.

I read on a magazine around here that says the price of these printers may drop below 500 euros, I'm already saving money to buy one, seems extremely useful for building custom airsoft stuff.

I doubt they will ever be so cheap, even at the lower end they are over 2000 euros: https://store.makerbot.com/replicator2x.html

There are even cheaper ones but the quality is far from perfect: http://www.mbot3d.com/

Inkjet and laser printers became popular enough to be low priced because even the biggest fool can type out a document or take a photo. 3D drawing on the otherhand needs a bit more skill, and the number of people willing to learn it might not be so high. Sure, you could buy a design from someone else, but if you're doing that it will probably not be worth having your own printer.
