1/144 M-24 Chaffe "3D-Print" from CGD !

1/144 M-24 Chaffe "3D-Print" from CGD !
CGD have been busy exploring the possibilities of 3D Printing. Time will tell if these become a new range of products, but if sucessfull I think this could be the start of a new wave of model builders!
Suddenly the average man has the option to design or even purchase 3D models and then have them printed on demand! That said, be warned it is not as simple as going to a website with some 3D Studio max files and sending it to be printed. There are still rules and conventions to follow, however if you are like me ... not so good at sculpture, but good with computers then maybe, just maybe there is some hope?
I have posted information about 3D printing in the past, currently Shapeways appears to be the market leader in this field and others should follow? It is certianly easier than buying and setting up you own 3D-Printer!

Yes, I've heard lots of good things about Printapart (but the delay can be longish because they are so busy), but not such good reviews of print quality from Shapeways.

Technology has developed to the purpose wherever we tend to square measure rethinking business. Consecutive age is gap up producing to the complete world – wherever everybody will participate within the method. This group action plan won't be a lot of completely different than the journey computers had – from a number of, big, centralized mainframes to one thing we tend to currently hold in our hands. I like totally and agree. And I think that in order to be comfortable with your style is to wear it more often. Thanks for sharing such kind of nice and wonderful information.
