    I know some of you have started to use 3D printing, can you tell us more about your experience with them? I also just found out Homedepot Canada sells 3D printers wow

    I am doing good to keep my regular printer going! I have no clues on 3 d printing. I’m thinking it would be expensive?
    It costs me about $40.00 every time my ink runs out. What does it cost for the 3D?

    They use a big roll of what looks like weed eater string. It’s cylindrical and comes in a bunch of colors ( just like weed eater string…) no idea if it’s the same or not, but it sure appears to be.

    Home Depot is carrying the Dremel printer. Nice. This technology will continue to improve and get less expensive. I am really looking forward to it.

    I really like the idea of a 3D printer, but to be honest, I don’t think I much of a need for one right now. Maybe some day.

    Same here. I brought this up a couple of years ago on a woodworking forum asking members what they thought it could be useful for in a shop. Best answer was for mock ups or projects, but even that I don’t see being used for very often.

    3 D printers amaze me on really what they can do . Technically printers have come so far .

    Always willing to learn .

    My company experiments with them. They’re already making 3D-printed screwdrivers that’ll be used on magnetic field heavy machines.

    I like the advances with the 3D printers but the resolution is still low. I’m hoping the powder type 3D printers advance more to make more structurally sound prints. I’m sure things will get way better in the near future but I’ll wait til then before jumping in.

    I like the idea of 3D printing, Matt made some Lbox clips that were really cool. I’d love to have one but just don’t have enough use for it for the price……Gee, It’d be cool if a 3D printer could print up a 3D printer *lightbulb* 🙂

    Actually the reprap can print itself but you have to buy all the motors.

    Apparently 3d printers are not all that hard to make. there are a few YouTube videos out there if anyone is crafty enough to give it a go.

    Just what the world needs, more plastic.

    I was reading on a hummer forum about using a 3d printer to print a replica button for the shifter. They have a tendency to fall of and to replace them is expensive. There is a library here that I have heard they have a 3d printer for public use although I have never looked into it.

    For those of you familiar with the movie Weird Science – I can see a remake with the boys using a 3D printer to make their creation. 🙂

    Hopefully it doesn’t turn out like Ex Machina.

    There are a few sintering type metal printers. shapeways even allows for metal printing but obviously a higher cost.

    Wow a library with a 3D printer what a neat idea. I hope that catches on.
