With all the http://freshnessmag.com/2013/05/07/defense-distributed-the-liberator-first-3d-printed-gun/”>controversy and negative attention surrounding 3D printing recently, it’s good to report on a positive story regarding this amazing technology.  With the success and popularity of last year’s http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2013/05/star-wars-d-tech-me-experience-returns-to-star-wars-weekends-at-disneys-hollywood-studios-starting-may-17-2013/”>D-Tech Me Experience at Hollywood Studios, Disney has decided to bring it back.  Occurring during the parks’ Star Wars Weekends inside Darth’s Mall, D-Tech Me is a 10 minute process where in which the consumer’s image is captured via the world’s highest resolution, single shot 3-D face scanner.  The images are then sent to a hi-res 3-D printer that creates the figure.  The price for the experience and figure is $99.95. The process takes roughly eight weeks before the consumer has the figure in hand.
