Ain't technology great? And as rough as parts of that look, it'll only get better as time passes!

 

GIL :cool:

As pointed out on another forum, the resolution of the kit could be much better if it were printed in something other than ABS plastic on a different printer and/or used as a master to cast resin copies, but in either case, the price would be prohibitive.

A lot of the newer figure miniatures and sci-fi stuff are done by 3D printing.  There's now more detail than ever in these small figures.

You just have to watch out for the kits where the producers hasn't tackled the  "grow lines."

FYI - There is a product called Smooth-On that's supposed to help with the rough surfaces from 3D printing. Great online pitch, but I've never seen it in person.
