    Indestructible Ball using 3D Printer

    cnet.com has posted a article about an indestructible ball using a 3D printer.

    Could this be the future of plastic balls?

    Pimples out rubbers should not have problems spinning that ball!

    I can see it now, new FleXtreme blade technology by Stiga, Tenergy Ultra PO (pimples out!) rubbers by butterfly, rainbow coloured version of the ball for the Chinese Super League... it's perfect!! (eyes turning into dollar signs and laughing maniacally)

    There is no such rubber, i'm just joking with the possibility of ITTF adopting that ball, and manufacturers making specialized products for it!

    Maybe one day 3D printer can make a TT ball that is 40+ but with the spin and speed of a 38mm ball.

    I see no reason why a 3D printer cannot produce a good quality TT ball in the near future. Ive often found it strange there are apparently so few factories able to make 3* quality balls? i wonder if it is just a financial decision?Perhaps there is not enough profit in such a venture.However with the price of the new Butterfly R40 ball then maybe others will start charging similar prices?
