    Nice looking first prints! The windsurfer turned out particularly well, especially considering it prints best with supports and a lot of newer 3D printer users don't know how to properly use brim or raft. Great job!

    Printers are invaluable for this and many other hobbies. Congrats on taking the plunge!

    What kind of printer did you get?

    What printer did you get? Hopefully I'll get some time to upload some files for the P3S to Thingiverse this week. Here is my Account.

    It works the same way as you do with car filler / fiberglass / paint, it builds up in layers.......:)

    You would probably be forced to print your own prison afterwards!

    yea you can add textured bumps so you can feel her up. it IS 3D. you can even have her caboose on backside of bill.
    You could also print the PLATES to print the money with.
    I read the #1 printed object is a sex toy. I disagree, the #1 object is a plate of spaghetti, I don't know anyone who hasn't made one. Maybe the #1 SUCCESSFUL printed object is a toy.

    U.S. government gave a grant to develop the printer, and now wants to ban it from printing. Professor wanted to make a Star Trek replicator, and was given the grant.

    But you can think of a 3D printer as an inverted CNC machine. It adds where the CNC removes.

    I guess you didn't get to fly that weekend while you printed those two.
    I'm waiting for a deal on wood fiber so I can print some paneling for mine ala 70's station wagons.

    Does anyone know if the $200 one from monoprice is junk or not? Was considering it.

    It's not junk - I have a reprap based printer and the monoprice one is just fine for a first printer and good choice.

    If you want to build yours get a tevo tarantula
