I visted UWE this evening to attend a talk given by Adrian Bowyer of the University of Bath on the RepRap project. RepRap is a project to build a self-replicating rapid-prototyper. His talk was excellent and when he'd finished he gave a demonstration of "Mendal" the RepRap Version II. Although not yet complete - Mendal is due to grow multiple, interchangeable printing heads - Adrian was able to show the device printing a coat-hook (visible in the photograph).

I think 3D-printing is a very interesting technology; we're at the early stages of personal 3D-printers at the moment and who knows how this will develop.
