Action Figures with 3D Printing?

Hey guys,

Have any of you tried to create your custom action figures through 3D printing? How about prototypes?

There's this new 3D printer out by XYZprinting that does full color prints. It uses CMYK inkjet tech to add color to every layer of PLA filament.

Check it out: https://techcrunch.com/2017/08/31/xyzpr ... d-printer/

What do you think?

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

This is a step in the right direction. If a 3D printer can paint proper shading and color interpretation on a 3D print, then that's a huge improvement.

The print resolution just needs to be higher, tho ...and the printer needs to be able to print with different filament types.
