It's interesting that the reason it's so lo-fi is that she had to down-convert the digital audio to 5bit 11khz to make the printing possible, rather than being something to do with the actual physical object.
yay! more shitty plastic crap for the world.
Why would you ever want to do this? The whole point of vinyl is that it's analogue.
No, I think the whole point of 3D printing is it brings up the possibility of fewer surplus manufactured goods. If this technology got really good, it would create the possibility of true vinyl on-demand. In other words, you could have any album or song you wanted on vinyl, whenever you wanted it but no unwanted records would ever be manufactured, which would be great for record buyers, labels and the environment.
