    3d Printing

    Anyone rich enough to have one of these? Used it to make any new parts?

    3-D printing? You can't be serious, alucard!
    Try to reach inside of me, try to drain my energy
    Let me show you just what I'm made of
    Simple curiosity trying to take a bite of me
    Let me show you just what I'm made of now...

    Oh, he can be; the technology is already out there - and there's no intrinsic reason why accessories, body parts - even whole figures can't be moulded in this way.

    Not cheap as yet, the kit - but it will get more so.

    So; which brave soul will be first to the breach?

    I really want to get one. Just not sure on the quality of home-printed objects versus professionally done ones. Also, plastic would be expensive...

    I'll be getting a 3D printer later this year.
    But the quality isn't good enough for factory like figures. I'll still be using my contacts for that.
    Take a look at my deviantart. http://kaassouffle.deviantart.com/gallery/
