    quote Phill Fenton:

    It’s amazing what can be done with 3D printers these days. I get really excited about the possibilities of using this technology. I remember about 13 years ago getting a 3D picture of my children etched into a piece of crystal glass. I thought this would have become common place by now but it seems to be a novelty item still.

    However, I reckon there’s a good business to be made producing miniature statues and bust of people from a studio – much like the very early days of photography when people paid good money to have a photo taken.

    These sort of things are not worth the block cost when you factor in the laser cost to have it made. They are still very expensive and really not worth the investment.
