USD $530 full-color 3D printer. Uses 4 colored rolls of filament (CMYK), which gives you a lot of options (and doesn't tie you into unique inks or toners). Looks like a beefy 8" / 210mm square print area, too!

This is the number of metal 3D printers sold worldwide since the beginning of the millennium. Sales last year increased by 80% over the year before.

Now, an inexpensive metal 3D printer will still run you USD $100K, but that's only going to get cheaper.

I just read a review that strongly recommends the book below as a primer on the current 3D printing landscape.

It's designed for the layperson who won't necessarily buy a 3D printer, but wants to order 3D printed parts or otherwise understand how it all works.

The review's author also strongly recommends getting the digital version (USD $19) instead of the physical one; apparently folks are reporting significant shipping problems with the latter.

Want to leisurely look at the map from the original Legend of Zelda? Just #3Dprint it. 30" long.

#3Dprinting can be fun, but here's a collection of useful 3D prints, from holders to smartphone cases to a wrench!

Update! The Mag iCreatum is now on Kickstarter. It starts at about USD $112 for the base 3D printer, plus $80 upgrades for a CNC carving module and a laser engraver module, and/or $45 for a pen plotter.

Build volume of 7" to 10" wide depending on model (it's a circular chamber) by just under 12" tall, with layer heights as thin as 0.004mm!

It's a Kickstarter from a new company in Europe, so backer beware and all that.

3D Printer + laser engraver + CNC machine, all for USD $500 (plus shipping). Or just the 3D printer for $100.

Kickstarter from a new Italian company, so buyer beware. They've only built one prototype so far.

Last chance to get my Printrbot Plus 3D printer -- $1,200 new -- at a starting bid of USD $499; buy it now for $699. You'll get 6 hot ends, plus the ability to ask me questions; you'll just need to clean the hot ends (plenty of instruction videos about that online).

3D printing comes to knitwear. Not cheap yet: this base model costs USD $5,000. But that'll drop quickly.

This reminds me of a hack for hand knitting machines that automatically threads a particular pattern that you load onto an SD card. Now it's all automated.

Reshared for the morning crowd: Gently used 3D printer, 10" cube print area, just needs extruders cleaned (plenty of instructions on the internet on how to do that). Starting bid $499, buy it now for $699, and you'll be able to contact me with questions even after you receive it.
If anyone's interested in buying a gently used 3D printer with a 10" cubed print area, I'm selling my Printrbot Plus on eBay. Comes with 6 extruders (all of which need some cleaning), an upgraded power supply, and a new motherboard. $499 first bid; buy it now for $699.

I've been successfully printing with it for over a year now. I'm just not a fan of Printrbot's new hot ends, and they don't sell the ones I've had an easier time with, so I'm moving on to other printers.

You'll also be able to contact me directly if you have any problems once you buy it, which can be a big help with a new printer.
