When will you be able to 3D print stuff you'd actually want to keep around? Sooner than you think. We've heard of (and seen) composite filaments before -- plastic that can be printed, but contains other elements and materials -- but if MakerBot is getting involved, then the world of 3D printing is most likely going to follow. Revealing the ability to print plastic with bronze, limestone, maplewood and iron inside, we've called it one of the most exciting 3D-printing announcements in recent years and thus the rightful recipient of the Best Maker-friendly Technology award. (Now, when will they be able to print something like our awards trophy?)
