The other part of the 3D printing equation

gnomes

Just spotted that MakerBot have announced that they’ll be launching a 3D scanner later in the year. Not sure whether the choice of object to demo it on was significant but, for those who remember a particular South Park episode, it does bring to mind the problem that the gnomes always had was ‘step 2′. That’s going to be the key to 3D printing taking off I think.
