Fricking amazing.

It is good that such a big company knows about 3D Printing.

Totally agree, Andy. I find it ironic that Google used Cinema 4D instead of Google Sketchup to model it...I'm guessing that's because its such a PITA to export color models suitable for 3D printing from Sketchup.

Hear, hear, Sketchup developers!! :-)

How ironic that they are showing their app on an iphone instead of an Andriod phone.

So eh... that looks like it wasn't "google" 3d printing a town, but some add company creating an advertisement for the google search app... Still cool! Now... is that commercial on-line as well? Too bad they didn't add the end product at the end of the video.

Love this! This is totally cool! It's a great application of Z Corp's 3D printing technology using the ZPrinter 450.
