If you really must copy something, don't institute the exact idea. Create something brilliant that is 3 − 5 steps beyond the original idea! Playing leapfrog is way more fun!
The idea is this: there's no need to buy a 3D printer (they sell those too) just like there's no need to buy a regular printer, scanner or copy machine. Just come into the service center and Staples will take care of the job for you. They'll have the equipment there.
