Hmmmm. 3D Printers

I’ve been reading a lot lately about artists using 3D printers and it’s a whole new medium. From my understanding you can create/draw 3D models on the computer, print them out on a 3D printer and then glue them ( I think) on your substrate and paint them. It looks like canvas would be too flexible and one would need a hard substrate like wood or an ACM panel. The results are very texturized - a hybrid of painting and sculpture. I must investigate. Hmmmmmm.
