Re: 3D Printed Records You do know someone has already created a laser turntable.
I have a demo CD they made for people who are interested. I have to say, I'm rather impressed. If I had >$1m in the bank, I would definitely invest in one.

That's the physical world. Besides, somehow this doesn't sound like it would suit the purist who believes everything digital taints the sound. Although I didn't do any research, if I had to guess, the laser samples the grooves and those samples then go through a D2A of sorts. That would be enough for analog purists to avoid it at all costs.
I was suggesting the 3D models (still in bits and bytes) could be interpreted by a "virtual turn table cartridge" which could decode the variations of the modeled groove. There's no lasers. This is just software. Of course the laser turntable sampling techniques and software could be fed virtual groove samples from the 3D model rather than the actual laser-sampled ones -- if that's what you meant.
