Makerbot -- mebbe for personal EV accessories?

Just listened to an interview about the MakerBot http://makerbot.com/ and it's a cool idea.

The Makerbot is essentially an inkjet printer for solid objects. You feed into it a file describing a solid object and it prints that object one layer at a time (1/2 mm high layers) .. the current model makes relatively small objects so presumably they'll be making new ones over time. There are high end expensive 3D modeling and object prototyping machines. They're expensive. This one can be purchased (kit) for under $1000

All through the interview I was imagining designing accessories for EV's and printing them with the machine.

Anyone want to buy me one?

Buy Ecotric bikes, get free accessories!
