What the fuck is a 3d printer?

The latest news on Serie A comes from Italy, where news is good and bad about what it takes to print a game from scratch.

It’s hard to say how much the latest developments in 3d printing will change the way you make a game, but there’s a good chance the answer will be more expensive than it looks.

A recent report by the newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport claimed a 3D printer was available for under €2,000. 

The news comes at a time when the Italian government is considering more restrictions on 3D printing in the country, with a plan to ban the technology from the country’s borders and to set up an electronic voting system. 

La Gazzeta also claims a 3rd party, called the Italian 3D Printing Association, is working on the technology, but it has not responded to a request for comment. 

A spokesman for the Association, which has a member base of around 2,000 people, said the organisation is focused on developing the technology and building the 3D-printed 3D models needed for its next major competitions. 

“We have received a request to investigate a new technology called 3D scanning and have opened an enquiry, but this is not the case as yet,” said the spokesman. 

As the latest news, there are a few points worth noting. 


It isn’t a 3 dimensional printer. 

You don’t need to be a 3-dimensional printer to print your game, as the 3d-printing industry is already well established. 

However, the process of 3D modeling a game is much more involved and expensive than simply printing it from scratch on paper. 

If you’re interested in 3D modelling, we recommend the 3D Modeling App for iOS, Android and the web. 


The new technology could lead to a revolution in games. 

In the past, 3D printers have been used primarily for 3D art and in the past few years, the 3-D printing industry has been booming, with many companies selling their printers to companies like Adobe, Apple and Sony. 

For this reason, it’s easy to see why the 3DS has become so popular, but the industry isn’t quite there yet. 

This isn’t the first time 3D technology has been used in a game. 

Last year, Microsoft announced a 3DS emulator, which was then used by EA and other publishers to add a 3 dimension to the worlds of Halo and Madden. 


The industry will need more time to adapt to the technology. 

There’s no question 3D software is coming to the market, but that doesn’t mean it will be ready in the near future. 

That said, the current state of 3d printers, and the technology they can make, could be enough for them to have a big impact in the future.

As games become more complex and immersive, it could lead them to become a lot more demanding, and a lot less accessible to gamers.
