    And for a resounding Angus, the first in months:

    I wouldn't ride in the goddam Epson-printed piece of crap.

    And in one sentence the vapid stupidity of this idea should become obvious:

    "The whole car – which is about 10 feet long – takes about 2,500 hours."

    How much do you think an hour of that large 3D printer time costs?

    That's the whole problem with "3D printing". It reverts from parallel manufacturing, like printing, to serial manufacturing, like manual copying. It should be called "3D writing" to honour truth in naming.

    I am imagining a modern automobile production monastery, with the mechanical scribes scribbling out auto parts in the dimly lit scriptorium, while the abbot reads from the gospels.

    It's a prototyping and tooling technology - that's all.

    At the moment maybe. In another 10-20 years, no.

    So why don't car manufacturers already build cars from plastic?

    I'm also confused as to what this has to do with printing?

    At the moment, but soon.

    It will have niche like for the military and outer space, having a home fabricator will have to wait for much cheaper energy and improved 'inks' although the 3d doodler could be a fun hobby for the arty types.
