The ability to 3D print has opened the door to multiple uses, though this medical potential creeps some people out.

Expectant mothers can shell out between $200 to $600 for a 3D print model of their unborn child, thanks to the 3D Babies company. Using 3D and 4D ultrasounds and computer images leads to a 3D image in three different sizes: 2" Mini 3D Baby, 4" Halfsize 3D Baby, or the 8" Life size 3D Baby. The baby doll renderings can be made in two different positions, which allow parents to make a decision to disclose gender prior to birth.

"Our ultimate goal is to bring a smile to the faces of parents, grandparents, and other family members as they recall the day that they met their little one," the company's website reads. "This product will become a treasured family heirloom."

There is huge potential for 3D imaging, but an artist rendering of a fetus in the womb might creep some expectant parents out. 3D Babies is well short of its $15,000 crowdfunding goal, but decided to move ahead with production.
