A Japanese artist has taken the use of the 3D printer too far.

A 42-year-old Japanese artist was arrested Monday for allegedly sending data of her genitals for a three-dimensional printer, reports said Monday.

Megumi Igarashi, who works under the name of "Rokudenashi-ko" (good-for-nothing girl)," was suspected of having distributed the data to a man through the internet so that he could produce a model of her genitals, the Kyodo News agency reported, citing police.

The Tokyo-based artist, who is raising funds to build a boat that looks like genitalia, has so far collected about 1 million yen (R 105 848.59 in exchange for sending the 3-D data to various recipients, Kyodo said.

"I cannot understand why the police recognize the 3-D data as obscene material," Igarashi told police, according to the report.
