    Wherever the post belongs, that is sure an interesting application of stereo lithography. I would be great for making small parts.

    Another 3D printer! --It's not actually that good at printing small parts... You can take a look at the gallery, and the spacial resolution is pretty limited as it is. So we paper modellers may have another few years to live...!

    Whoaaaaaa. . . .

    As someone who dabbles in making his own miniatures . . . ooohhh man! Think of the applications. Design your own cool model in something like Metasequoia, print it, and ta-da! Custom miniature!

    I can see it now, my army of little plastic Space: Above and Beyond Marines, Hammerhead Fighters, ISSAPCs . . . . and Chigs. No one ever makes Chigs.

    And now I'm supposed to sleep tonight?!?!?!
