BU_Terrier Posted June 1, 2013 Share Posted June 1, 2013 I know 3D printers are still very expensive and not a practical purchase for most at this time. I am wondering as 3D printers become cheaper (within 5 years I'm guessing), would it be possible to build some of the models in large scale that currently exist in small scale. Models I'm thinking of are things like SCIFI models and ship models. I was thinking it may be possible to scale up model / model parts from existing gets to studio scale or at least to a larger scale. I'm not sure what would be required, possibly a 3D scanner too. But if existing models / model parts could be scaled up and down, this would give all of us a way to own models that will never come in a specific scale. I know I would love to own a studio scale model of some of the Star Wars models. I was just curious about everyone's thoughts. I think the negative could be pushing small scale manufacturors out of the market. Again, I do realize this is several years out. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
