Comment Re:Copy machine at stores (Score 1) 264

It's still the right idea, if you remove the "wait in the store while it prints" part. Maybe order online, let the store print it, get an email to pick it up/send it via regular mail. While things like Shapeways and 3D Hubs do exactly that, there's no store doing the same thing. So if you live in a big enough city with a few people listed on 3D Hubs you might be able to pick it up yourself, otherwise there's always the shipping delay.

I've read about UPS teaming up with a company about doing exactly that, but I haven't heard anything since then.

Someday, a while from now, you'll be able to go to a website, select a cup or a custom statue or whatever, have it 3D printed and delivered to your door for a fairly reasonable, even cheap, price.

You mean something like Shapeways or 3D hubs*?

* they also list commercial/industrial-quality services, not just home owners.
