wasn't that the Leno's garage where they made a Crescent wrench (in one printing) and it worked?
I had seen a thing on the tube where they were doing a facial reconstruction of a human skull that was being used as evidence for the manner of death, so they had to scan and make a 3-D model of the piece. The interesting thing was the material they used for the model, paper, layer upon layer of paper. It would use a laser to make a layer it would be glued automatically to the previous layer an next one is cut out, etc.. Very cool never seen a printer like that before, and because of the thickness of the layers there was not that 'pixelated' layered look that plastic and some other mediums can have.
