3D Printing

01/27/2012 2 comments

Bell of Lost Souls has recently posted a brief article regarding the potential effects 3D printing will have on the hobby.  You can see the article, along with what is apparently a printed Space Marine Dreadnought here.

Now, for my two pence.  While the advent of 3D printing is a remarkable achievement, I don’t think anyone need worry any time soon.  I feel that there will always be a market for ready-made high quality miniatures in whatever material is best at the time, however this technology has the potential to revolutionise the bitz market.  This will of course require a substantial review into exactly what is covered by the various copyright law which are currently in force.

In any case, as the article rightly points out.  The lawyers will have a field day.
