Beam Me Up a New 3-D Printer

By October 18, 2008

Follow me on:

Printing in 3-D is becoming more and more common. Most recently, Objet Geometries unveiled its Desktop 3D Printer, the Alaris30. The Alaris30 models using plastic polymer from CAD drawings, and videos (like this one on BoingBoing) show that the quality of the finished products is excellent. Though Gizmodo reports that the price of this high-tech gizmo is around $40,000, we can hope that it's just a matter of a few more years before you can start making your own plastic toys, models, jewelry, or whatever else you can imagine.
