Hero Forge

Pretty cool... Hero Forge - Custom Miniatures.

They will send you the 3D printer file, or 3D print your design for you, or even create a bronze or steel miniature.

I designed this one with just a few clicks.

Ammo for 3D Printed Guns

Hate the title... but an interesting way around a problem.  The Bullet That Could Make 3D-Printed Guns Practical Deadly Weapons:
"Now an amateur gunsmith has instead found a way to transfer that stress to a component that’s actually made of metal—the ammunition."
"His ammunition uses a thicker steel shell with a lead bullet inserted an inch inside, deep enough that the shell can contain the explosion of the round’s gunpowder instead of transferring that force to the plastic body or barrel of the gun."
"Crumling’s 3-D printing-friendly ammo will serve as a proof-of-concept—and a reminder: If gun control advocates are taking comfort in printed weapons’ impracticality, that comfort gets a little colder with every upgrade."

3D Printing Is Not Magic

Despite some of the challenges, I still think there is a lot of potential in 3D printing. It's not like the internet started out with wireless tablets and other magical sci-fi tools. Give it some time. I remember when I was a geek since I had a (wired) network in my home. Now grandmothers' have networks and preschoolers zip around iPads.
