So I've built a few 3D printers over the last couple of years from RepRap.
They work great, but not fully as functional as I wanted. Most 3D printer kids are thousands and thousands of dollars, take a ridiculous ammount of
room and the material components are difficult to find & expensive.
Well no more.
Apparently these people will get you a 3d printer which does 5.5x5.5x5.5 inche prints for 1200$.
That is literally amazing. I've not found a better alternative. Now although this reads like a commercial it isn't, I don't encourage you purchase
anything you don't really need.
In this case, as the title suggest for me personally, they can just take my money.
A bigger topic here is how 3D printing may bring back manufacturing to countries who do not have it. Making small things is a big business and there
are many many ideas I've seen regarding small businesses and 3D printing for a variety of things.
Like table top game miniatures for example. Games Workshop charges an arm and a leg for any of their models. With this software and hardware, you
could build your own, much cheaper and to your own tastes as opposed to their standard modeling.
