With all the 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 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.
