3D Printer

Post by llama380 » Tue Jul 24, 2012 8:25 am

Got a 3D printer today
It's first model; a rabbit is sitting on my desk.

Can't wait to have my own little fleet of plastic F/A-18s and F-15 Eagles. :D
Hopefully I can get some pics up

I read an article about those. How much do they cost? and how much are and how big is the material it prints with?

This 3D printer costs about $1700 AUD (About the same in USD; gotta love parity)
The filamet reels (where the material is stored) cost about $50 / kg
The material is a hard plastic called ABS, density 1.004 g / cc

Takes about an hour to do 10 cc
