You think that's cheap, you can get a MakerBot for $2000 on Amazon.  Now, I can tell you from personal experience they are not the greatest and machine reliability can be a bit suspect, but if you're just doing stupid fun stuff at home and not trying to use it in an industrial setting, they're not that bad.



Thanks!  I really appreciate it.  I love a good challenge, and this was fun to do.

Oh I know, you can put a homebrew system together with like $500 in parts, more commenting on the industrial, "professional" class machines.

The trick with the low cost ones is that you have to REALLY know the process to get good results and be able to adjust as needed. The high end ones lock that down.
