    There is no use, its a waste of time and effort. I don't see whats so revolutionary about reinventing an existing thing in a more shit way.

    its a start! i think its just showing everyone what is now possible. who knows? soon you may be able to build ur own vinyl through 3d printing or laser cutting and no one needs to then worry bout labels stopping pressing vinyl. the label would just sell the 3d printing blueprints and then you manufacture your own. i think this is all quite exciting

    sure...but is it really more viable for the customer to run his own pressing plant for records they want than the record label pressing records for people that those that want them. I mean financially at the very least

    This is basically what interested me, the wooden vinyl although has a novelty value it can only hold 3 mins of tunes and as mentioned sound quality isn't all that but the possibility of being able to print your own vinyl with 3d printers which will inevitably become cheaper is pretty sweet.

    a 3d printer can make anything though. so all it would take is someone starting up a 3d printing business similar to a photo copying business and then a label would just have to sell blueprints of records and remove the risk of pressing too many records and being left with dead stock. it will be quite interesting to see how this changes the industry if at all. once the technology gets better and sound quality gets clearer i could really see it becoming a big part of the music industry. time will tell. as for being financially viable for a consumer, all you really need is the raw material which you can buy for cheap on ebay so theoretically, as long as you have access to a 3d printer, it should work out cheaper.
