I've got to get me one of those.

I like the looks of this...



At $2500, still a little expensive but with mass production, I'm sure that'll come down.
Lets hope they get the project off of the ground.

Love that coffee table but some of the other designs of this fella leave a bit. That black bed for example, get up in the middle of the night to take a leak and snag your little toe on one of the bed legs, your gunna' be up all night looking for the little blighter.  :LOL:
It WILL be fine !...

I've found an affordable, geeky toy I'm lusting after. A 3D printer.

https://shop.ultimaker.com/en/ultimaker-kits/ultimaker-kit-new.html#

It's working out at about £1,500 for the kit, software, plastics, VAT and shipping.

Still trying to work out a money making angle on this though.

Imagine the computer case parts you could whip up, for custom computer builds, or "Artsy" home/garage/man cave wall decorations, or unique jewelery, or one of any number of items. :)

For that matter, you could use it to create casting negatives for custom metal fabrication, or... Well, the list is endless. :)

If you get the professional 'sintering' type of 3D printer, you can make metal parts directly.

Please note that they don't publish their prices. If you have to ask...

Snowcrash you could always use it for your current storage project, and sell other designs as well  ;)
you could also use it to build a 2nd bigger 3D printing machine  :P

Until I went to the website, I had this crazy notion that it was "actual size" (e.g. 3-5cm long). Then I saw that it was much, much larger. :o :D

Still in all, it's an amazing machine. :)
