There’s more 3D printed Star Trek with a view of this video by PC Magazine, who took on the task of 3D printing the Starship Enterprise on their 3D Systems Cube personal 3D printer. 
It’s a time lapse video, obviously, as 3D printers simply are not fast. This shows one of the main challenges that consumer 3D printing must overcome: wait time. It can take many hours to print anything substantial, particularly if printing in a higher resolution. For now, early adopters will accept such delays, but a larger mass of consumers won’t.  
Which company will invent a speedier way of 3D printing?
