What elements of the Rapid Prototyping world fascinates you most?

The Idea of generating a real world model from 3D data, translating  and converting that CAD file to something that you can feel and touch. People are amazed at what is possible…things had to be man made in the past and now we have technology that creates using materials and machines.
