What Is A 3D Printer Good For? Stop-Motion Cartoons Featuring Princesses, Of Course!

Makerbot creator Bre Pettis and his musician friends from Scary Car made this cute little video featuring 3D printed action figures being created in (near) real-time and then discovering love.

The video is celebration of Makerbot’s big debut at CES last year and the launch of the Replicator, the company’s new complete 3D printer that we featured on our CES stage.

A lot of folks would equate a 3D printer with frippery but it’s clear that these things are plain fun and, more important, they work.
