    Wonderful advance in medicine with this technology. Learning about 3-D printing to reproduce chess pieces I carved from wood but all seems too expensive.

    Thanks. Yes, your absolutely right 3D printing is expensive. But if we see good results in health and medicine. I think it will worth it:)
