i can’t make up my mind if this is cool or heretical, but basically someone has bought a make bot, ie. a 3d printer, it spits out plastic to make 3d ‘prints of virtually anything, its the same process that shapeways use. anyways some ones 3d printed a lego minifig, and managed to print them in different scales as well, as you can see here, but if you look at the finish of the minifigs, they look horrible, like a skateboard been over them on a cheese grater.

    these were my first try on a machine that costs less than some lego sets.

    i can dip them in acetone and it will smooth out all of the layers similar to this
