'[EE] $300 Desktop 3D printer'

From Dangerous Prototypes.com:

MakiBox A6 - The $300 Desktop 3D Printer <http://www.makible.com/projects/7-makibox-a6-the-300-desktop-3d-printer>

$300 plus $50 worldwide shipping buys you a fully-enclosed 3D printer complete with motors, drivers: everything but the computer.  They don't say whether they include a starter supply of ABS filament.

This is a 'Kickstarter' type project which currently has 38 out of 100 supporters (I'm number 38) and has raised $15,575 so far.

The demo video looks pretty convincing <http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Kx9zEoS5XLs> and I like the thought that has gone into the design.  He starts off with a basic RepRap design but borrows heavily from MakerBot and others.

He's located in Hong Kong and a quick Google search of his name doesn't show up anything bad.  So: I plopped down $475 for a kit plus 5KG of assorted plastic filament (includes shipping).

I'd be interested in hearing about anyone else's opinion about this unit.

Thanks!

dwayne

Haven't looked at this one, but there is this 3d printing that does a very good job that is open source. The local community college has a lab, and as I understand as work for students,  they will make up a set of the specific parts for very nominal cost. Also there is a company in Kent, Ohio (and others) area that puts together a package of all the parts, or will assemble for you. These things can reproduce the parts needed. I sure would like one, but at this point of retirement, I have enough projects to complete while I am able. :)

With a 3D printer you'll be able to complete MORE projects, not less :-)

I'm a little worried that they say they're building the prototype now
and they'll be able to ship in march.
Keep us updated, Dwayne.

Here's a link to probably a better alternative. This is a starting point to info:

Here's a good introductory video:

Just search for "RepRap"

I'm sure we are all going to be holding our breath awaiting your report on it ... ;))))

Another one of the many things I would like to have a go at, but don't really have a current use for ...

I've been dancing around the edges of getting a reprap for years now...  Now I've taken the plunge and am funder number 40 for this little beastie :)
Thanks for the heads up Dwayne, let's see what happens :)
cheers,          Robin.

Probably not in the $300 range - yet

Small but perfectly formed: Scientists use world's fastest 3D printer
to create amazingly detailed F1 car (... that measures just 0.28mm)

I wonder what the usefulness is of plastic devices at the nano scale.
Making semiconductors at nano scale seems to be more useful.
