@Andy_I: Speaking of tasty ... my daughter is waiting for the 3D printers that print food. Think about printing your own decorated cakes in any design you want.

Damn ... now I'm thinking of cake!!!

@ost: Btw, did you see this? http://www.markuskayser.com/work/solarsinter/ The guy prints stuff from sand using solar power!

I hadn't seen this -- very interesting -- thanks for sharing -- I would love to have one of his creations sitting on the bookshelf here in my office.

@Duane: Someone, somewhere slipped a decimal point and the 20" part came back to us as a two inch part. It still makes me chuckle to think about it.

I wish I could have seen everyone's faces when you opened the package :-)

@ost: I want the sintering type...

If you get one, can you take photos and write up your experiances and send them to me for me to report in a future column?

Yes, they make 3D food printers, just not for home use yet.

I guess, technically PVA is available commercially. From what Iv'e seen of it in use though, it isn't very practical. The material itself is quite finnicky and extremely expensive compared to PLA and ABS. At the price of that stuff with the issues I've heard of, you might as well just have it printed in higher quality through a service.
