MakerBot's new Replicator line makes 3D printing easy 

Android Central @ CES

You have to watch Cali and Kevin spend 10 minutes with Bre Pettis from MakerBot. Not because it's about Android (it's not) and not because it's the future of mobile (it's not) but because it's cool as hell.

MakerBot's new Replicator line of 3D printers was unveiled at CES, and hard to put together and even harder to use 3D printers have now become a thing of the past. The new gear is sleek, affordable — starting about $1300 — and ready for my office. Imagine all the Android Central editor bobbleheads I could print.

Anyhoo, be sure to have a look here for some great new technology. You'll be glad you did.

I wonder how good the quality of the prints are? Extruded plastic/resin, is usually the lowest quality of 3d printing.

Understand it may not be the highest quality, but for home and personal use it's great. I can remember way back in rapid prototyping's infancy what the costs were. I specd out and bought an SLA 250 from 3D Systems back in '91 and it was six figures for a complete system. We've come a very long way since those days.

I find it amazing how long this kinda technology takes to make it's way into the hands of the general public. 3D printing has been around since 1984....

Every home should have one....

the big print giveth, the small print taketh
