Maker-Bot : Must-Have For All Properly Equipped Deep Rock Shelters

Gotta have one of these. Awesome. I cannot tell you how much time I waste in fabrication of various components for custom computer and automation cases. For example, I really need a custom monitor hood over an LCD screen. I need a custom shaped fitting to attach a solenoid valve to my air exhaust shutter. I could save so much time if I had one of these devices to make those things for me out of hard, polycarbonate plastic.

bravo ... beat me to it

they're Kiwis !

they have a view that "distributed networks" are more robust; why be dependent on some entity for fabrication or product when you can (hopefully) develop some competence in some arena

the price on plasticstock hasn't jumped much either

O/Dude

What is exciting about reprap is the people making it are going beyond plastics and are trying to get it to print circuit boards.

I also saw one video where they claimed the plastics, used in the machine could be made from potatoes.
