Wow, Greg, great post. I'd have to agree, there are aspects of finish and surface roughness that you'll never be able to automate. (And God alone knows if you're compensating for different grades of rubber, etc. as you go.) I was more wondering if it would be better if you could. It would definitely shift the economics into a more winner-take-all market, though, which I think would actually be a bad thing and stifle innovation (see Microsoft).

If there were serious industrial applicaitons for getting the surface roughness of a 3d piece of plastic just right, someone would figure it out, but the economics aren't there and never will be.

Alseg, I'd assume the one with the big "imperfections" in a different color is is old one - but I also get the feeling you're trying to trick us.

One last, 3d "printing" is extremely limited in the materials you can use and still requires finish machining in an application like mouthpieces, so its really no help.
