    I am quite surprised – and it sounds like it actually may be pretty good quality for the money. The cost of these are starting to be less cost-prohibitive… 3D printers very well may become a “staple” item before we know it!

    Can’t wait until those prices come down.

    As interesting as 3D printers are, I’m not ready to drop $1000 on one.

    1k? No thank you. Might be worth it to some people

    I can’t wait for affordable home 3D printers. Might see an influx of people making it onto Dragon’s Den with new ideas.

    Just read about this over on the ToolGuyd’s site. Good read if you follow John’s link. Price is $999 for a self contained unit and they are accepting orders over at amazon. Gentlemen the 3D printing revolution has started. This unit may not be the final answer but in a few years these things will be everywhere, probably in your house too.

    No thanks. Just to much money for what it is or can do for me.

    Hmm, interesting play for dremel. Looks like a good machine, but I still don’t get why everyone on the market is still using the PLA plastic, it’s only good for trinkets in my opinion. When I looked at the L-BOXX clips that I had printed the PLA ones were really brittle and weak compared to the ABS ones we ended up using.

    Great point and info on the type of plastic, I wouldn’t have had any idea about that.

    So since it’s Dremel doesn’t that mean it’s actually owned by Bosch? Maybe we could get them on the rewards list 🙂

    haha I guess that is a possibility. I’d rather see a Dremel 4000 kit become available, but I guess it would be a fun addition 🙂

    I think within 5 years these 3D printers will be closer to $200-300 and far more of a commonly purchased item.

    I love the idea of being able to create an object out of thin air. I am looking forward to the day that they make an extremely hard resin that you could use in a tool. Imagine being able to craft any tool you need for a specific job right in your shop. The possibilities are endless.

    I’m with you, I see this as being huge. They have already come way down in price in the last two years. The price will only keep on dropping. They will be as common as the printer hooked to your computer soon.

    This is just the tip of the iceberg. I am sure much more to come from various manufacturers. Can’t wait!

    I do hope that in my lifetime there will be a progression to make these work with something even more durable than the ABS plastic – I would love to think some day you could get a machine that would spit out pieces made of aluminium.

    They already have them, they are called CNC Machines.

    Sorry – I meant in the affordable price bracket like where the 3d printers are starting at. Show me a aluminum CNC for under $500 that is easy to use like these and I’ll line up to buy it.

    Stuart managed to get a better glimpse of the Dremel 3D printer at the Maker’s Fair – http://toolguyd.com/dremel-nyc-maker-faire/

    he was generally impressed it sounds like (for the price of the machine)

    Nice write-up on the printer. Thank you John.
