So you say you need some Stude parts, but they are unobtainium...no sweat, just print them up. A co-worker sent this to me...wow. Hmmm...lets see, maybe whip me up some new grills and surrounds tonight. Something to bend our conventional thinking minds when it comes to fabrication. Regards, Junior.

This technology has been around 20 years in one form or another.

A fixture at the SEMA show, where there are a number of vendors who offer these devices. Combine that with a 3D scanner, and replicating a part gets easier. You just have to put the $$$$ into that stuff in the first place.

There are a bunch of videos out on the internet of Jay Leno using this kind of technology to make prototype parts for his ultra rare cars.

I like the NASA version that has a roll of titanium tape.
It prints the parts out....in titanium.
The vacuum part is easy in space.
Something to think about in long term space travel..... Spare parts.

Actually, new lenses could probably be done today.

Plastic crankshafts, however........

A while back someone on the forum had purchased a used 3D printer. There was a thread here about it. I wonder what happened with it.
