3D printing is helping to take your favourite game-based props and characters off of the screen and into your hand. 3D print merchandisers like the France-based FabZat have placed a major focus on customized 3D printed content of video games like Minecraft and World of Warcraft. Even game manufacturers themselves are getting involved in the 3D printing hype, G21’s XMODULE racing game not long ago revealed that their in-game cars may be contributeed in the form of custom 3D prints.
Now, video game manufacturer Frontier Developments and 3D printing merchandiser Eucl3D are collaborating to contribute 3D printed spaceships of the game Elite Dangerous, a space adventure and combat simulator accurately based in the Milky Way galaxy and on the market on PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.

And, unlike a few other 3D printed merchandise out there, these spaceships are amazingly low-cost, every one is priced at only $29.99. Each full-colored print looks as if it was a created DIY design kit, accurately basing the detailed colors and components directly of the Elite Dangerous world.
