@a.saji – I think nothings impossible when you have 3D printer at home. You could easily create any object you want in minutes, isn't that amazing. Remember the traditional dot matrix printers, who would have thought there would be a time when we could create and object physically.

@a.saji – I feel 3D printing is a different angle of thinking; I would love to see how 3D printing happens and the final product. I am sure it would be around us very soon, couple of months most probably.

True Rob it's nice to hear that the Elizabeth is a surfer, Elizabeth why don't you share some photos.
Elizabeth I have heard something call personalize Surf boards, is it true? If so there is a great advantage of 3D printing surf boards.

I agree, Elizabeth, 3D printing is going primetime. It seems to be doing so in a number of industries simultaneously.

I;m a surfer too, and though 3D printing is a novel idea for surfboards, nothing can recreate the true art of a board maker.

Good for you Suffer Elizabeth! With 3D printing, there are some limitations in the type of materials you can use. Does this limitation compromise the quality of the custom boards?
