MMmmm, don't know what to think , it's clever , but it'll never replace studio pots imo, but then again it isn't supposed to , don't really see the point in it myself , I know some potters are using computers that enhance the decor on their pots and I'm not that keen on that idea either ...............I just Dunno Shrugs

3D printing has HUGE potential but this example is a poor one.
Did anyone see the walking machine shown on QI last year?

I saw that walking machine pretty incredible, I quite like that 3d stuff and it will only increase the value of handmade things as they become rarer

The future of 3D printing is almost limitless.
But it just leaves me cold.
How many do you want?
One?
One million?

I saw a really interesting piece of research In 2011 (part of a Manchester Met project called 'Pairings') Helen Felcey worked with David Grimshaw exploring ways of 3D printing a small slipcase cup in a whole range of materials and colours as a "way of making sense of the made object". at the time you could go on http://www.shapeways.com/ and buy your own copy of the cup in whichever combination of colour and material you liked. Very cool!
