    Lol 3D printing is the nr. 1 hobby on Wikipedia! I can agree with nr. 2 and 3 as well, have yet to try nr. 4, possibly 3D printed, although I do have a native Polynesian boomerang.

    I do agree that 3D printing is a hobby just like sawing, we can get a bit obsessed with the tools themselves. But figure sawing is definitely a proper hobby as well - anything you can put your heart and creativity in. Hobby relates to passion - what you love and what you are good at - in the end we also want to make something useful to the world and gain wealth. I haven't heard any news about Jay Leno and that Arab sheikh though.

    hell with that kind of money he can get his own baam, metal printers and makes cars from scratch :-)

    For me a car is a tool. I put stuff in it and it takes me and stuff to where we want to go.
    Making one from scratch with a bunch of fancy 3d printers, would be fun.
    Fixing up existing cars - does nothing for me :-)

    Each to their own :-)

    where did you find the list of hobbies that put 3d printing at the top ?
    Gardening, stamp collecting, coin collecting - hell just collecting stuff - is massively more popular than 3d printing :-)

    Well ! ! !
    3D Printer is at the Top because it has a number in the Name alphabetically speaking, It was a play on words stating its location on the List..

    Printing isn't a "hobby" anymore than a wrenching or sawing is a "hobby."
    For some of us wrenching and sawing are hobbies
