Your replicator rations have been increased


Your replicator rations have been increased

by Selby Evans (Thinkerer Melville)

Sure. The tech been around for a long time.  But now the economics have changed.  
=======================

=============
"We define 3D printing as any additive manufacturing process whereby one machine turns a
digital file into a finished physical object by building up that object layer by layer."
-
Plastic objects in 10 working days
-
Metal objects in 14 working days
===============
Creation-- details
-
"Create a model in almost any 3D modeling or CAD software"
-
Export to STL, Collada or X3D file.
-
"You can also let others order your model if you want."
=================================
Possibilities:
Artists create art in virtual worlds, get evaluations, sell objects as solids with companies like this.
-
Artists in virtual worlds take commissions, build models, in VR, make deliveries via 3d printing.
-
Architects and others who need models (eg, for rapid prototyping), hire VR builders to create the digital versions and to export them for 3d printing. 
==================================
Of course, this kind of thing is not like a game.  
  • There is a steep learning curve.  
  • Doing this takes time. 
  • Getting set up is inconvenient.   
  • So it won't work.

Except for a small number of people who don't understand obstacles.
