It requires an internet connection to do most of the processing work. That is how it can print from phones or tablets.

But the firmware will be released with the printer. So you can run your own server and you will not need their servers.

If it was a true standalone, all day I am on it. But that is the case.

It is a good thing that they release the firmware with the printer.

Sweet, now all we need is someone with the software to support it - since it doesn't come with its own software (relies on the "cloud"). Which is my actual concern, releasing firmware only fixes it if someone adopts it.

Unless I am not understanding how this particular situation is setup.

No. $4000. The difference is that for the extra $1k that you have left over you can build a really nice computer in order to run a business with this printer and make that money back in a pretty quick manner.

Umm.... no thanks. You could use it to make a lot of money, but I'd rather be able to print weird crap.

I wish I could afford a sintering machine, but I'd rather have a typical FDM machine over this, IMO.

I just bought the Glowforge after much contemplation. True there are other better 3D laser cutters out there but for the price, convenience and ease it kinda hard to beat. I am entering the creative line and really need a laser cutter I can use at home. Am really excited for its arrival.Referral code: http://glowforge.com/referred/?kid=zcLHiz if any of you are interested.

Cheers!

Laser cutter, not 3d printer. It's cool that the tech is becoming affordable, though. I'd love to have a laser cutter on deck.

Heard him say the word cloud and yelled "IT'S A PRINTER!" at the monitor. He had nothing to say.

Could go mad with an acrylic custom watercooling loop

You can do a harbor fright cnc mill for cheaper than this. Its an awesome machine though, fabric cutting is really interesting.
