Yes, we're already seeing it being used to make working test products, AnandY. The next step is small-volume production.

@Anandy: 3D printing has already taken a giant step forward. Its just a matter of when the investors are going to place their trust on this particular item. Since its still on its early days there are lots of things which needs to be addressed and those points will have to be evaluated properly on a regular basis

@ Charles Murray, it is really good to see the pace at which this technology is heading forward. In a matter of just a few years 3-D technology has made its present felt very strongly at such highly esteemed shows. I am sure it will not be long before we witness it moving forward from prototyping to making actual products.

The 3D Face Mask is great! Just what every common criminal needs for next-gen robberies, and just plain old-time yahooing beer from the local convenience store. "Analyze This" camera facial recognition software!

The 3-D printed face is simply awesome. I can understand how it would have made those people who were there have double look at it because it looked so real here in picture as well. At first look it made me feel that someone has actually put his face into some kind of scanning device. It was only after reading the description that I came to know it was a 3-D printed face. Simply brilliant!

Here's the weblink to instructables. The site is awesome and it has cool projects to build like electronic devices, 3D printers, and CNC machines.

I agree. The 3D printer is the gateway to developing an inexpensive dental cam device to disrupt the current expensive units used in the industry. There's an abundance of 3D printers and CNC machine projects that can be found on the instructables website which can be redesigned to implement a dental cam machine at low cost.

To the best of my knowledge, dental cam(cnc) are pretty expensive(say 80000$).but it feels like there's some large opportunity to build a radically inexpensive dental cam and disrupt current players.

I see Dental CAD providing a lot of benefits to third world countries who may not be able to afford traditional treatments. The playing field of 3D printer manufacters is staggering with cost as low as $300 dollars. Also, plans to build your own 3D printers have been open sourced thus making Dental CAD a reality.
