This is pretty amazing, reducing 3d manufacture from hours to minutes.

I didn't get a chance to see the video.

But I purchased a 3D printer back in December, (by justifying it as a hobby) I have printed a few proof of concept proto types projects already before actually machining. Made some changes. And the cost of these prototypes is basically the cost of material and electricity (under $20.00. But the savings can be in the $1,000's if done the conventional way..

(and they are small projects.)

This 3D printing process is amazing.

I've been trying to justify buying a 3D printer for some time now.

I'm sure this new technology will be too expensive for the hobbyists for awhile.

I'll share with you what I have.

I was looking at 3D printers since the early 90's, with stereolithography, My Uncle, a retired Naval Inspector, his hobby was building built model ships on for the shipyards on proposed contracts.

With my working at the shipyard, I saw the protentional, but not the $100,000's of cost made me leary.

Last fall, a co-worker purchase one, and he shared his investagations, and I basically bought one also. with not only justifying it as a hobby, but also winning $400.00 at our company Christmas party.

I purchased a FlashForge CreatorPro for $1099 (I believe) with a $250 rebate (which I did receive yet) - the $400.00 Christmas party winnings for a total of $449.00.

Of course I proceeded to purchase replacement parts and slicing software, about $600.00 and about $500.00 worth of filaments stuff for the work area. Plus a new work table and lab bench from Harbor Freight about $250.00. It really put me over what I wanted to do, but, as my luck would have it, my company Christmas bonus was very nice and made it easy on my.

From the link, I see FlashForge are moving out this model for $999.00 for the new model they're coming out with.

I made a development for a new style of die grinder that I printed out, and currently signed up at the local tech college machine shop program to machine the actual prototype out of steel. So, I think this summer, I'll be pretty busy with making a working model.

I'm very excited about it and looking forward to it.

I swear the 3D printer, it took 20 years off, except the stamina. That's still at a 55 year old, I can't no longer work the 16-18 hour work days.... At least not for very long stretches.
