I use a 3-D printer in my CAD Drafting class... It dosnt fit on a desktop or anything,... its about 3' wide, 4' deep, and around 6' high. All it does is take a string of plastic, heat it, and make a mold out of it. Its still pretty cool that something like this could actually become available to any home user soon.

Well ummm (to the article writer), you can't print off anything complex, or anything...it would be a solid replica of whatever you're printing...you could print out individual parts that can be assembled I supposes...and in some years, perhaps more complex machinery could be 'printed'....but think about the materials being used to make the items...you can't print off, say a knife or Katana (assuming they eventually allow people to print of larger items) and expect it to hold it's own in a battle...its only Nylon and polymers and stuff...

But still, given time and R & D, this could develop into something very cool
