You could easily turn your models into printable build files (Sketchup HAS an STL export feature, which is a stereo lithography file and they are used PRECISELY for 3D printing) and produce fantastic consoles from what you have already modelled. I was really quite surprised that you could produce such detailed and accurate work with Sketchup to be honest; I've used it a few times but found it a bit lacking for my taste, but that's clearly not the case for you. If you wanted to try your hand at using something like Solidworks, you would have no problem whatsoever!I know you're joking, but truthfully mass marketing isn't an option for 3D printing; it is, by definition, not a mass-production tool, although some companies are getting close to production quality and speeds. It really though only lends itself to parts that aren't manufacturable by traditional means, or for rapid prototyping / 1-off model making. I wish I had the tools for mass production! Turning the idea into the actual thing would be quick and easy, not weeks and weeks...! Anyway, I *wanted* too... that's why I got the printer! I appreciate the sentiment though...Cheers.D.
