    3D printing DIY

    We have all seen the video of a heavy duty expensive 3d printer.

    Now you can buy a small 3d printer kit for a lot less. I can see the possibilities in woodworking as well. It allows you to export the Sketchup files into the software.

    Here is a review by someone who actually purchased and used the product:

    I think this technology will only get better and cheaper.
