The customers are now the manufacturers. Or at least they are on Amazon, which unveiled a 3D printing service Monday.

Marketed as a way to “shop the future,’’ the site lets customers purchase objects created on a 3D printer and even customize those objects to fit their demands.

Looking for a decorative vase? Perhaps some earrings? Maybe a hanging “Dawg’’ sculpture—the modern equivalent of taxidermy?

All those can be yours. And they run at relatively reasonable prices. Many objects sold through the new 3D service cost around $30.

Your mileage may vary on the usefulness of the service. I doubt I would actually shell out the $24.17 to buy a 3D printed poison skull, which Amazon suggests adding to my desk at the office, when it came down to it. I might also have qualms about designing a bobblehead that resembles me; it seems a little narcissistic.
