Thumper... That is a smoking deal for the Makerbot. I have been eyeing one myself and I know they are 2200.00 off their website. I would say you totally scored on that one. I have a good buddy of mine that is in California that has one and I am going to send some parts that I am drawing up so he can print them for me so I can see how they turn out in that machine. I would have no complaints picking one up for 500 bucks...lol

thank you thumper85. a friend of mine and i were looking a splitting a replicator2. finding something that would do just engine and driveline parts  would be worth the cost for me in 1/8 scale.

Is there still anyone out there who doesn't think that 3D printing is going to revolutionize our hobby? And revolutionize a lot more than just our hobby?

 

3D printing is going to be huge–in so many ways.

Dear Santa,

Please bring me one 3D printer.

Sincerely Yours,

Doc

P.S.
You might want to throw in some 1/25,1/16,and 1/8th scale model cars too. And, maybe a gift certificate from TDR.

The Objet printers (and a couple others) will produce well-nigh injection-molded quality parts. I mean, hey, they small one is thirty grand, but, whatever...:lol:

 

Seriously, another few years and this is going to be something beyond incredible. Once the details and materials are completely sorted, we could have something truly marvelous.

Something doesn't seem right.......Either that is a very large penny or that is not 1/16th scale.

true statement, except you can make more than just round parts, but I know what you mean. One thing thou is the learning curve of the software if you want to make your own parts and not download a file to work with, played around with the free google software and Ill need to learn a lot to make something like a complete engine..........

Agreed. That is 1/25 scale.
