Well, it'll be good and bad. We might get away with cloning GW stuff so they'll have to drop prices, but terrorists might get away with printing bombs. The world will change because of it, not least because we'll be printing bombs and boobs.

You do know generally how easy it is to make a bomb, right? Terrorists don't even -need- 3D printers to do it.

It would make mass-production easier though, wouldn't it? Plus, if the printers can print multiple materials at once, they could put bomb making on auto and do whatever it is that terrorist bomb makers do, besides bombing.

Did I mention bombs?

You'd have to keep swapping stuff out to do it really. Much better to create and assembly line with picker-bots doing the assembly if you want to mass produce things.

I'm only getting better with molds. This takes me next level when they come down in price just a bit more.

The boobs in the kid's pillow is just good sense. Nothing's more comfortable for a good night's rest, and he should share that with dad for the event when such comforts are withheld by mom.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.
