It looks like a new 3D printer is soon to be on the market. I couldn't tell the quality of it based on the video but the thing is really affordable.

I'll let the link speak for rest.

Very interesting, I'll have to keep an eye on this project. Although the production models are not due until the end of the year :(

Are 3D printers getting cheaper than the 2D ones or is it my idea? :shock:

So... how about releasing printers creating constantly moving parts based on 4D symmetry?

Only when they learn to turn themselves inside out while printing. :mrgreen:

It looks great but I'm weary of the whole cartridge thing.

Do you prefer if we violate the conservation of matter? :D
But it would be cool if we could recycle the printed material.

Can you explain what makes you weary? I don't have much experience with these sorts of things.

If you read the info on the website they explain that you can put your own material in the cartridge if you want.
