Lance Abernethy, a maintenance engineer from Auckland, New Zealand, 3D printed a cordless drill that measures 0.67 inches (17mm) tall, 0.27 inches (7.5mm) wide, and 0.5 inches (13mm) long and holds a 0.02 inches (0.5mm) twist drill. Not happy with that, he is already working on a smaller version.

Perhaps MakerBot felt bad for Stephen Colbert after Nasa failed to name their new toilet after him. Whatever the reason, he can't complain about a 3D-printed bust of his head being sent off to space.

We've seen all sorts of objects printed from 3D printers, but the European Areospace and Defence group (EADS) has shown off the first bike made from nylon—which they're saying could replace traditional steel and aluminium bikes due to the affordable method it's created.
