[CNET] 3D Printing Breaks the $500 Barrier - Page 2

post #11 of 40
maybe now we can get another 1 or 2 3d printers at my school just did a Society and Environment project yesterday using our current one a proof of usefulness. For anyone wondering most can only produce relatively small objects so no benches made by them for awhile also unless you get the dual plastic ones they can be a paint to remove the support material as on the fancy ones you can use a plastic that dissolves in methylated spirits. The rolls of creamy white plastic are also ~$80 each

It's sad to say, but LEGO is probably on the verge of extinction. Once you can print out complex mechanisms the building blocks that we all grew up with will be almost entirely obsolete.
Kids in the future will all be 3D modellers at the age of three, and they won't have to waste hundreds of hours searching for tiny obscure bricks.

I'm betting these things will be the basis for a second industrial revolution. Once they become capable enough there are a lot of companies that will become irrelevant.

Not as long as heavy GPU waterblocks are out and the company you bought the card from doesn't supply a backplate for it. I will always have a use for legos. thumb.gif

while $500 dollar 3D printer is great to play with i'd be more interested in cheaper CNC. Much more useful than 3D printer though much more wasteful. Think about it. custom parts and blocks etc even if it can cut things only about 8 inches wide and long.

This might not be at the price point that you are looking for, but in case you are not already aware of this company's products you may be interested in checking them out:

I have been interested in rapid prototyping technologies since I had been first introduced to them in 1997, but I would like to see a higher resolution for my purposes.

Considering the cost of legos these days, the 3D printer might be less expensive after awhile.

Googl.... Good evening, sir, and welcome to the Internet. On the internet you can find nearly everything there is to find.... including "stuff these type of printers create". Being that this is your first visit I shall hold your hand throughout the adventure; our first stop is the "Google".

My college has two 3d printers. Want me to take some photos of the stuff people have been making on them?

C'mon, pick some decent pattern for your lego blocks... say Red and White then alternate RWRWRW; what you have now, brown grey, green etc looks ugly.

But I wasn't joking......I fold too. Just not as often as needed for a postbit.
