    Nice looking first prints! The windsurfer turned out particularly well, especially considering it prints best with supports and a lot of newer 3D printer users don't know how to properly use brim or raft. Great job!

    Printers are invaluable for this and many other hobbies. Congrats on taking the plunge!

    What kind of printer did you get?

    It works the same way as you do with car filler / fiberglass / paint, it builds up in layers.......:)

    You would probably be forced to print your own prison afterwards!

    yea you can add textured bumps so you can feel her up. it IS 3D. you can even have her caboose on backside of bill.
    You could also print the PLATES to print the money with.
    I read the #1 printed object is a sex toy. I disagree, the #1 object is a plate of spaghetti, I don't know anyone who hasn't made one. Maybe the #1 SUCCESSFUL printed object is a toy.

    U.S. government gave a grant to develop the printer, and now wants to ban it from printing. Professor wanted to make a Star Trek replicator, and was given the grant.

    But you can think of a 3D printer as an inverted CNC machine. It adds where the CNC removes.
