3D Printers Used as Star Trek Props

in ThreeD (3D) Printing7 months ago

This is interesting. According to the YouTube video below from the TrekCulture channel the Star Trek: Picard series uses modified 3D printers as props for replicators. The details start around the 9:08 point in the video.

I guess it's not that much of a stretch to assume that the Flashforge Dreamer and Monoprice MP Voxel are simple versions that point the way toward matter replicators being possible.

Maybe someday when my Tronxy XY-2 PRO breaks down making it into my own replicator prop would be a possible way to repurpose it. Knowing Paramount though I'd probably get some letter from some lawyers that no matter how different my replicator prop project looks from anything shown in the series it still infringes on their intellectual property.

I find the thumbmail picture just as interesting.
