You wouldn’t download a car, the Internet meme predicted. But if The Pirate Bay has its way that action will be a reality in the years to come. In preparation for this world-changing day, the world’s biggest torrent site has just premiered a new section containing the plans for physical items that can be downloaded then printed out. Today its a plastic pirate ship, but one tomorrow in a decade or two it may well be a car.

Downloading cure for cancer...brb.

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/technology-blog/could-cure-cancer-found-team-video-gamers-181043412.html

"
A team of scientists at the University of Washington have turned protein research into an addicting computer game. So addicting, in fact, that the amateur players have become more skilled at protein design than the scientists themselves.
The game, called Foldit, was released to the public in 2008. After solving a few tutorial puzzles, players are given a massive, complex protein that they're able to bend, twist, and shake. The players' goal is to use their toolbox to fold the protein chain to make it more stable. The more stable the protein chain, the more points are awarded. (If you're interested in giving the game a try, point your browser at fold.it and download the client.)

Is a reprap the way to go or is there another option? I ask because the machine just looks so small and the price tag seems so high.

I think its going on my list of things to get but what about large objects?

Loopster - At the current prices of parts and the physical machines themselves, they ARE very expensive for the price. That is why I usually use other means of producing things than using a reprap or 3d printer. They're great to give you a physical representation of an item IRL but their operation is so bloody expensive if you don't build it yourself, know what you are doing OR can source things/parts  cheaply.

RepRaps are nice but are hardware designed by a software engineer.  Unless you are very experienced with building things you will probably want to look elsewhere.  If you are serious about buying a 3D printer to experiment with (and you do not want to visit your friendly neighborhood hackerspace), look into a Replicator from Makerbot Labs.  The resolution on their latest models is impressive.

Right now, for objects larger than a six inch cube you will have to print and assemble components.
