I think I may have convinced enough people at my school that we need one. We might have one for next year. I'll take orders on things you want me to print as soon as I can.
One day soon I shall get myself a 3D printer...
The big problem is there still painfully slow, and most have abysmal resolution.
Resolution of hobbyist machines has been improving; the Ultimaker does some very fine prints (although not as good as shapeways). The main issue is that they're unreliable; you can't just buy one and expect it to churn out pieces without regular maintenance.
