I was reading CrunchGear.com and saw a story about ShapeWays, a company that allows you to print 3D objects. Companies have been printing 3D models and prototypes for years now, but this is the first time an average Joe like me gets a chance to try it.

You can either personalize a stock item, like a candle holder, or upload your own design. Once your design is ready, it’s printed and shipped in ten days. The pricing for each print varies, but they will let you know up front, shipping is included.

After looking at the gallery of things people have gotten printed it makes me want to try this. I really think I should try to create a Mr. Baconpants action figure. That would bring new meaning to the phrase, “playing with yourself”! Anyway… what would you get 3D printed?
