well $90 is actually pretty good sense it takes about 14 hours to print about 1 1/2 hours of coating in the solution. Think of how much it would cost to print a stack of papers 3 inches tall (500 copies 10 cents each bout $50) and paper and ink used in that is cheaper then the powder and glue used in this.

here's my whaleboat. I think I've posted this one here before:

I'll make a render of the castle tomorrow. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

yeah seriously. Imagine if you were building a really big model, you could make that thing look amazing!

[edit]

Just read the cost and the printing time. I guess you'd need a lot of money and a lot of patience for a big model.

I want to print a bunch of 8-inch models of my cruiser, paint them, and use them in miniature games :D
Just out of curiosity, how big a model can this machine print? If I could model my own coffee mug and print it, I'd be the coolest kid in town.

Insanity is just a state of mind

"$90, thats like 5 quid..."

I can only hope that was an intentional typo :s

LP- well the castle is 8" x 6.5" so probably not much more

TimTamFin- too bad its not Nebraska where no one knows how to use it and they haven't tried to market it.

MG - thanks, ya I was happy with them. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
