That would look soooo good in a live event, e.g. a tradeshow. But maybe I'd rather have the 3D chart built with plastic boards than printed with a 3D printer. All the cutting and gluing will likely be faster than one run with today's 3D printers ;)

I didn't think of that one...the printer could be busy for days or until it runs out of material.

The lobby will now have a full size display of PEZ despensors.

This was a good one - you know this is going to happen, if it has not already !  : )

By the time the 3D printer was finished, the data was already out of date.

Bet that was an expensive mistake! Seriously though there are great benefits to 3D modeling of data. It makes data more tangible and understandable to many, however software solutions maybe more practical from a cost perspective.

thats true. The visualization with 3d is more accurate and precision increases. you can get into the details of minor things and also get a close up of the infrastructure. 

When it comes to Big Data and 3d , we should be prepared to have room for huge bar charts and xl pie charts. Also imagine if we have to print a 3d ERD diagram for a data warehouse? too much mess i guess. 

why not?

This reminds me of what NASA is doing is doing in visualizing the data of the stars captured in Hubble telecope images into tactile form for the visually impaired by using 3D printing. While it's great to convey the data in a way that people who can't use their sight can understand, it also has potential for more accurate modeling than 2 dimensions can provide.
