    Check out this blog from Peter Diamandis.

    Maybe some years away from now, but I can imagine a world where all of us could use our own 3D printer to print massive fleets of ships on command.  XD   Imagine a printer running all day making Pirates CSG ships.  Say goodbye to inflated eBay prices!  XD  O_O

    Ahoy Ben!

    Amen, Brother. No assembly required! You would have to print hulls and masts separate though. Oh and you would have to paint the ships too, unless you use brown black plastic for the hulls and white plastic for the masts. That could be a work around to painting just touches of details. Who knows what the future holds!?!

    P.S. Thanks!

    Exactly.  Eventually technological advancements might allow for more precise printing and more options.  Perhaps someday we’ll be able to print painted ships that can be deconstructed!

    Ahoy Ben!

    Pre-painted mini pirate ships that can be deconstructed you say someday, now that would be amazing!?! I would like to add custom bowsprits, etc…?

    That sounds wild but hopefully someday!  I think it could revolutionize custom ships, if you could simply create digital artwork that the printer uses to print your design for you.  I can definitely think of some wild and epic sail designs….
