3D printer

For a very very long time I wanted a 3d printer. I finally purchased one instead of building it from scratch. With my new PrintrBot I can create things 10*10*10cm.

So far I printed toys for my kids, replacement items for the printer and various bits and bobbins.
Next up is a range of GoPro mounts for a friend of mine to mount on his rallycar with ~800bhp.

I cannot describe the feeling creating objects from scratch and see it build up layer by layer - you have to experience it.

Here is just 1 picture, see lots more on my G+ profile
I might not be able to create entire planes but I can Tricopter yaw's, gimbals for FPV (brushless)
covers for bare FPV cameras, motor mounts and lots of other useful parts..

The gear on the picture is about 80mm across

"replacement items for the printer"?? Self replicating machines are abominations and a danger to the human dominance on earth! Print responsibly.

I'm curious what the cost of printing a plane like that one in the video would be. I'd love to have a 3d printer, as a 3d artist, that'd be awesome to design up a plane and have it built infront of you. consider me jealous mate :)
