    Oh, you mean like using capital letters where they belong? The use of smiley faces, etc, allow the poster to insert expression into there post that is missing in a post is without them. Thus, preventing, hopefully, a miss interpretation of the poster's intent.

    O.K. Let's put this back as a response to the op's original question:  "Will 3d printing work at home." The correct response is yes, with stipulations.
     Those being the following: The source of the 3d printable file. This can be achieved one of three ways. 1: Find the file on the on line. 2: You contract or have someone you know create it for you. 3: You learn cad drawing and create it yourself. Believe me, it's far from rocket science. You sure don't have to be a pro to learn and use it.
    You need the right printer. The ones in the video's above that I posted will give you as good a print as Shapeways and I have it on good source, sometimes better. The problem currently is this style printer will range in price from $2000 To $3000. The one in the first video would have cost around $3000 a year ago. Currently, it retails for $2300 plus shipping. They will continue to come down as time progresses. Once you procure the printer, you need to learn how to best use it. Again, this is not rocket science. There is plenty of help available, even on this forum.
    This style printer, unlike the fdm filament cheap printers, is for real. Jeweler's  use it, dentist's use it, gamers use it, etc. The list goes on.
    Take heart. This desktop technology is here right now. It's only a matter of time when it becomes affordable for the interested model builder. If interested, do what is needed to to learn to utilize this technology.

    Although the above 4 posts are correct mostly of todays status of 3d printing at home, as someone who is actually involved in  achieving this activity, I view the future differently. The most difficult stage of achieving in home 3d printing at home is the file to print. Learning to use the printer is not real difficult. I see either a large data base of printable files, or many individual sites that will give you an option of a resin copy or a 3d printable file of the part needed. The technology is here and changing for the better. The following gives you a good idea how the dlp printer works. Keep in mind that there are 3 basic styles of this printer. This one has a tilting vat which allows it to build larger parts on the x,y axis, ie, side to side and front to back. The flex vat style does not tilt and is used for printing small parts. The third version is the top down that I have been using. The dlp projector is on the top instead of the bottom.
    The next references inform you as to progress that show you what has evolved to speed up the print time.

    Also go to https://grabcad.com/library to find files. Just remember, not all 3d files are 3d printable.
  10. my66s55 added a post in a topic Will 3d printing at home work?   

    The absolute first question you need to ask yourself is: where are you going to get the files needed to print what you want? 3d printing isn't like buying an ink jet or laser printer. You can't just plug it in and push a button and get what you want. It is a complete learning process. I second the above post as to the quality of a cheap 3d printer.

    I think CHRIS, as you read through the posts in this thread, It depends on three factors: Time available and spent at a time, the amount of detail you want to use plus your ability to not have to redo any procedure multiple times. The results will very as to the efforts and desires of individual builders.
