Potential home 3D printing applications

Just a few thoughts on practical home applications for 3D printing:
  • Model building (ie planes, ships and cars)
  • Miniature figurines (ie Warhammer)
  • Board game pieces (eg chess, Monopoly)
  • Artificial potplants
  • Temporary replacement parts for home plumbing
  • Single-use cutting boards
  • Constructing extra plates, cups and utensils for entertaining
  • Home jewellery making
  • Download-and-print phone shells
  • Toy making
  • Perfect-fit glasses frames
  • Extra storage containers

PS - The equipment must get cheaper first, though.
PPS - I think that's just a matter of time.
