You’re going to love this 3d printing, they said. Wave of the future, they said. Doctors working on the cutting edge of medical science can use it to make internal organs, they said. That’s great news if you are a doctor working on the cutting edge of medical science, or you need an internal organ. (And bad news if you’re an organ thief selling tourists’ kidneys on the black market—don’t tell us, we don’t wanna know.) But what’s the take-away here? What does this 3D printing mean for the man on the street? What difference will 3D printing make in my life?

A Dungeons & Dragons fan has the answer. Harnessing the awesome power of his 3D printer and accompanying software, he has taught the device to print Dungeons & Dragons miniature figurines. He may never save someone’s life with a home-printed spleen, but that’s not stopping him from amassing a small army of Driders, Otyughs and Beholders.
