Default For you Science Fiction types, a 3D Printer

This is pretty neat. I am betting the purchased tool is cheaper then the 3D replacement.

It is only science fiction until it becomes science fact.

Funny thing, my uncle came up with an idea similar in nature and everybody thought he was off his rocker! He wanted my dad (electrical engineer and copy repairman) to help him to "mass produce plastic parts using a copy machine." If we only knew...

Hell when they can duplicate a working and functioning version of one of these, I will buy one.

Take a look at the reprap project and/or the makerbot.
