In a sort-of follow-up to the story about Games Workshop suing someone over 3D printing, here’s an interview with 3D printing pioneer Peter Weijmarshausen, CEO of Shapeways. It’s not specifically about gaming, but the implications brought up in the interview apply just as well (in some ways, better) to the production of miniatures, which by their nature are only made of one material and thus are perfectly suited to the technology.

Excellent! Thanks for sharing that, Joe!
"3-d printing" is the future of manufacturing. The need to have a large factory overseas producing relatively inexpensive goods will disappear in our lifetime.
It's amazing to have been here for the growth of the information age and the end of the classic industrial age.
