Great work done , No doubt ths is the art of current technology that things, actions and parts can easily be manipulated .

To find a good printer in Canada. I would suggest using the following companies: Toronto Printer | Calgary Printer | Winnipeg Printer | Montreal Printer | Regina Printer | Saskatoon Printer | Quebec Printer | Ottawa Printer | Edmonton Printer | Vancouver Printer | These companies provide the best and most affordable price in whole Canada. Other printing companies I suggest would be Print Quote Services | Printing Company | Best Local Printer | Some other local cities have great printers as well such as the following: Charlotte Printing | Dallas Printing | Nashville Printing

Nowadays, it is hard to find quality print trader. This is my recommendation for best print trader in the united states Best Print Trader | Lowest Price Printing Wholesale | Print Outsourcing | Print Broker Trade

Lastly, all print should comes with a state of the art Print Management Software. I would highly recommend this print software tool.

One of the great things about technology is that it keeps evolving. We have created a 3D printer that uses subtraction techniques to dramatically reduce the time to print (on average about 1/20th that of additive machines) and more importantly, the cost. With our materials as low as $0.06/in^3, we have made 3D printing affordable. Check out 2BOT.com

Yes, I think you're right, Jack. I do believe there's a fair amount of knowledge and effort required in terms of scanning and manipulating the 3D image of the to-be-printed component in CAD or another 3D type of design tool. I think that's where we'll see a lot of activity over the next few months/years in terms of making the software more accessible for use by non-engineers coupled with less expensive, more off-the-shelf, packaged scanners/3D printers. Should be exciting.

Yes, that's the video I had in mind.  I figured that it wasn't showing everything.  There's got to be a fair amount of manipulation of the "scanned" image to specify the moveable parts.

@Jack: Is this the video you're talking about? If so, yes, Munson's 3D printed Ground Zero sculpture is produced using the similar 3D printing technology from ZCorp. It is truly amazing what's being done with this technology, although it is a bit more complex than comes off in this video.

Great tribute to 9/11.

Slightly off topic, but is the technology used in his 3D printer the same that is used in that video of the 3D scanner that's been floating around the internet?  If so, not only is this a great tribute, it is also a lasting one.  (For those who haven't seen the "scanner" video, they scan a crescent wrench and make a somewhat usable copy).

Munson's 3D depiction of Ground Zero stands among the many noteable ways America remembered the events of 9/11 and the 9/11 victims this weekend. I applaud all of the time and effort he poured into making this sculpture happen and his commitment to ensure that it was part of the formal remembrance. While the many photos and digital clips keep the event etched in our memories so too does this 3D visual map which shows just how much New York City and the rest of the country lost that fateful day.
