     Last night, I was watching CSI New York. One of the characters wanted to look at a bullet that was in a horse. He wanted to know the caliber of the bullet so he could find the weapon that fired it. Apparently he had an MRI image which he used to produce a model on what he called a "Z Printer". Since I am blind, I couldn't be sure, but I am guessing that he was portrayed using a Z Corp machine. Of course the model didn't have the microscopic details of the actual bullet, but it helped the investigation, and eventually the real bullet was retrieved from the horse. I wonder if we will see more RP machines in programs.
