It's the kind of thing I'd expect to see first in Make Magazine, not the Daily Mail: a London ultrasound imaging
center centre is supposedly offering to make 3-D prints of stills from 4-D ultrasound scans. I say supposedly, because the the one they show in the article is of the daughter of an employee of the denture molding company that made the blobby baby head sculpture. And they say they'll cast the thing in bronze, but they only show the sugary printer output.
So I'm inclined to believe this is just a trial balloon, and only time will tell if anyone actually ponies up £1,200 for the real thing. Only then will I subject this product idea to merciless ridicule. I will grant that it's a far better method for fetus casting and bronzing than what the NHS used to do the 50's. I don't even want to talk about it.
