3d printing warcraft pets?

Post by Flowerpower » December 7th, 2015, 1:43 pm

So I've been hearing about this new 'phenomenon' known as 3d printing[/url]. It's like having a normal printer at home but you can actually print stuff into physical form, at your own house.

Yes I've heard them print all kinds of guitars and other musical instruments like a wireless guitar system.

But these are music instruments. You can build them by parts. A house requires larger parts.

Is this some kind of another internet hoax or something.

I mean I would love to make my own warcraft related stuff as well. I even found this:

This will help so many medical clinics out there. Imagine making real solutions for your patients.

Anyways, has anyone tried this or is this another 'dream' that will not come true :(

its so true :) just doing a 3d printer search will bring up a host of options.. mix with the 3d pen.. and wow! the sky is the limit. they are costly though..the kids one is about £300, and the better ones go up to about £5k. am totally gobsmacked by this technology - simply stunning!

The sky is truly the limit: there are printers coming into pre-production now to print (grow) tissue for transplant using stem cell technology. Our grandchildren are going to be amazed that anyone ever died waiting for an organ transplant. :o

I have used a 3D printer myself and they are COOL. (I'm an electrical engineering biotech nerd who gets paid to play with this stuff)

Here's a quote from Nature:
Additive manufacturing, otherwise known as three-dimensional (3D) printing, is driving major innovations in many areas, such as engineering, manufacturing, art, education and medicine. Recent advances have enabled 3D printing of biocompatible materials, cells and supporting components into complex 3D functional living tissues. 3D bioprinting is being applied to regenerative medicine to address the need for tissues and organs suitable for transplantation. Compared with non-biological printing, 3D bioprinting involves additional complexities, such as the choice of materials, cell types, growth and differentiation factors, and technical challenges related to the sensitivities of living cells and the construction of tissues. Addressing these complexities requires the integration of technologies from the fields of engineering, biomaterials science, cell biology, physics and medicine. 3D bioprinting has already been used for the generation and transplantation of several tissues, including multilayered skin, bone, vascular grafts, tracheal splints, heart tissue and cartilaginous structures. Other applications include developing high-throughput 3D-bioprinted tissue models for research, drug discovery and toxicology.
Awesome, right?
