Xmas idea no.8!

Have you ever seen something on the internet and wanted it there and then?

Here is a printer that lets you print full objects not just images. It’s known as the MakerBot and looks like a cut up cardboard box with loads of wires sitting there. Having a little look at their website it says, ‘ A MakerBot is an affordable, open source 3D printer. It’s a machine that can make things. It’s your own little factory!’

it is a bit of a geeky looking printer and I can’t really find any true use for it but its end products do look really cool.

You can either buy the printer ready assembled or you can assemble it yourself. You can basically assemble it within 12-16 hours. It can print on three types of plastic which means you can print your own parts to upgrade your printer!!

take a look at the video below and if you are really interested, the price has also been listed.




Price of the printer: $2,400
