  1. Replicator 5th Generation - Really like it

    I know there is a lot of negative talk about Makerbot, but I don't think they really deserve it. My friend just brought home a MakerBot replicator (5th gen), and it's awesome. I love the on board...

    So I would assume this would mean that Delta 3D printers don't have a gantry?
  3. Will 3D printing ever be as simple as 2D printing?

    Do you guys think that 3d printing will ever be as simple and easy as 2d printing is now? I mean where you can just find a design online, press print and the object prints. No setup, no slicing, no...

    This is really a pretty big deal for MakerBot. The next big step is to convince Best Buy to start selling MakerBot 3D printers. Once that happens, this hobby could really take off.

    This looks better than I expected and the final product will even look better. I'm not a fan of the digitizer, so I hope this can produce better results.

    I like this idea. I agree, we need somewhere to find all these merchants, and companies.

    Just wondering, how is this site going? I haven't signed up yet, and was wondering if it's worth it. Is it gaining any traction? Is it pulling anyone away from Thingiverse?

    I just think it's funny how this thing gained so much popularity. It really is nothing more than a hot glue gun on steroids. I feel like you could just modify a hot glue gun, to heat at the correct...

    Best Starter Software for Modeling?

    What would you guys say would be the best starter software for my son who wants to start 3d modeling. He is only 15 years old, but is quite the artist. I want something either free or very...

    I have no clue what their plans are with the Digital Store. It seems pointless to me. It's funny because MakerBot posts stuff on Thingiverse too. The thing is, the designs they post themselves on...

    Can't go wrong with one of the many RepRaps out there for under $1000. Takes a little bit of a learning curve, but it's worth it in the long run.

    Man, this is truly revolutionary in my opinion. This is the most realistic looking hand I've seen yet from the 3D printing community. Awesome job Gyrobot!

    Honestly I doubt many people with 3D printers even visit Shapeways. They would be more inclined to visit Thingiverse I think.

    What exactly is the K8200? I have never heard of it myself. I really believe that its best to purchase a 3D printer from a known brand. i.e. Makerbot or 3D Systems (cubify). This is because you...

    Cool idea, but I don't think it means Google is planning to enter the 3D printing or design market. At least not yet.

    Wow, that's a lot of dedication. I can't imagine how much of a thought process must go through the design and prototyping of these things. Here's to Oskar. Truly an amazing guy.

    Oh that's a bummer. I had some mighty plans, which just fell through :(

    I'm wondering what we will see on Kickstarter now. I'm tired of all the SLA and FDM printers on KS. I've love to back some SLS technology though!

    Wow, I didn't even consider Carbon Fiber being an option for 3D printers. I'm sure this opens doors for a lot of people. Especially those looking to make automobile parts.
