I was just checking out about 3d printing.. for a short while ago they were only able to make parts in some kind of plasticform.. Now they are able to make it in stainless steel and bronze etc..
Its just a matter of scanning the object mail the scanned data to the printshop and they make it ..
I am thinking of scanning my beloved early babbitt hr and let them make it in stainless steel..
or scan all the parts of a nice mark1..
I think we are at the beginning of something big..
