    a few months ago docs used one to construct a replacement jaw for a patient to replace the original that had to be removed due to cancer. it worked perfectly.

    the machines that can do that kind of work cost millions. companies like major airplane manufacturers have them.

    seems like this 3D printer is going to be a big game changer...so not much of a need for all those cheap chinese manufacturing jobs.

    I wonder if 3D printers can print out solid 3D objects? Or even hollow 3D objects?
