    Has anyone thought of a good way to make extra money with their new 3D printer? Here are some of the ideas I have come up with. What do you think?

    -Printing 3D printer parts and selling them online.
    -Rapid prototyping for other businesses.
    -Making moulds.
    -Making models for architects or anyone that need on made.
    -Printing custom bobble-head dolls of people using 123D.
    -Printing and building 3D printers for other people.

    Does anyone else have any good business ideas?

    A spin off of the selling them online, depending on what it is Etsy could be a good outlet if it is houseware or art sort of deal. Could always give back and do a kickstarter campaign!

    Actually, if the resolution was good enough, you could emboss someone's face onto the little Lego guy head.
