I have used 3D printers recently to produce replica parts for making flight simulators but have never used anything 3d printed to such a high resolution.
One possible DIYAudio application I have considered is 3D printing wave guides for line array HF drivers.

Just thinking here. There are several dozen totally different technologies for 3D printing. Mostly either making solid from a liquid or some sort of thermal deposit. What if one of these were combined with a machining tool? Mechanical, electron, laser. Then the ability to add shapes generated from other technologies, such as a metallic shapes. I was also thinking about printing a metallic power with a binder that could then be fired to produce sintered parts.

I've lost the link but recall a tube amp built on CNC grooved teflon slab with heavy (cast?) Silver conductors pressed in

I ran across the original clip that started this thread. Yes, they did try to print an LP. It said it needed to be more than 30 times finer resolution to work at all. In other words, they made a disk with a rough surface.
