I can see no way in which this could be a bad idea.
When you don't have time to wait.
3D printing bones.
Faster printing of human tissue.
Video of the process at the link.
3D printed telescope for hobbyists.
It's a long article so I'm not C&P the whole thing, but besides it being cheaper than a commercial scope, it has a lot of features that a commercial scope doesn't have.
Here's a pic of what it looks like:
Because while they're not all that good at shooting folks, they haven't figured out how to duck.

Would you like fries with your 3D printed project?
Why didn't just buy the cooking oil directly? The ingredients for McDonald's frying oil are high oleic low linoleic canola oil and/or canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, citric acid, dimethylpolysiloxane. They were asking various chains, so just buy a 5 gallon jug for about $40 or so. It would most likely still work.
3D printed vegan steaks are coming.
Looks like something that would have come out of this.
So the Amazon series Upload was bang on the money.
Well, people have been talking about doing something like this for some time now (back in the early days of this thread, even), these folks just seem to be the first ones to actually do it with fake meat. I'll be interested to see how it tastes, since I found the Beyond Burgers to be rather disappointing in their flavor, to say the least.
Another way to get around the limitations of having a small printer.
I'm 3D printing a wine rack.
Despite a problem with the nozzle, my Flashforge Finder is still going strong! Just have to offset the Z-axis by 0.7mm.
These guys are going to be 3D printing rocket engines.
These guys plan on 3D printing whole rockets.
This is an interesting idea.
More at the link. A couple of commentators pointed out some issues with the design. One is that there's no mention of fireproofing of the materials. A few years back a tanker truck exploded under an overpass and the heat from the flames really fucked it up and they had to tear it down and rebuild it. I can't see a plastic-based one being able to withstand the fire for even a fraction of the time that the concrete overpass handled it. Another is that it might be possible to accomplish the same thing simply by extruding the plastic.
