3D printer

I was going to post this in the KA section under 'print your own krystal', but I thought it would be more fun to see what you would do with it. You already know what I'd print, what about you?

I don't see what's new about this, other than the fact it's a BIY kit. Similar rapid prototyping machines have been around for years.

They're cool machines, even if they have been out for years.

I'd love to have my own, but those I have seen cost roughly what an average person earn in a year or two. Or am I thinking of something different now?

This kit will sell for ~$1000, which isn't bad. Now that I think about it, this is the big news. Prior to this, you'd need many thousands of dollars for one.

For comparison, A new HP LaserJet 4250 (business laser printer) cost ~$1200 when they were still in production.

Really? I didn't have sound when I watched that video, so I tought it cost the same as those old behemoths.

1000 dollars, I'll probably buy it some day. After they have ironed out the inevitable bugs in the software that is.

I'll use it to create a giant statue of myself, make it in tiny bits and puzzle it together into a monument of my epic brilliance! :lol:

There's a few companies out there that do this for a reasonable fee. What's awesome about this (and the other companies in only the last couple years) is that you can now manufacture objects that won't crumble in your hands.

Ah, we have quite the ego, I see.
