Someone said :
Wheelie I bought one of the first "home versions" of the 3D printer, a prototype funded operation. Its complicated and most certainly is not as ready for the home market as they would like to market.
But watch the space... it will all be digital download in a shorter period of time than we imagine.
Were you able to make things with it, and what sort of things? What I saw being made were simple plastics for jewelry and such like, but I didn't see much beyond that. Mind you, some of the printing involved complex lattice-frames of thin plastic threads and suchlike - a little uneven and rough, but still, interesting enough to have some decent hobbyists enthused.
