There seems to be a rapidly evolving revolution happening… Not only in the US, but here in the UK too, and across the world. How about printing something, an object, when you needed it? Yes, literally printing it on your desk using a machine which you can now buy for a feww thousand pounds. Sounds a little like Star Trek doesn’t it?
It is now reality.
Our friend Jon Moss has written an article about this new printing revolution…
Technology makes me smile. Especially things like the Makerbot. Thinking back to my childhood, never in a million years would I think that we could have a (relatively) inexpensive machine, that could print things. Stuff. Objects. Sitting on a desk. In your own office or house. Quite amazing.
Iâ€™ve been loosely following the progress of the Makerbot over the past few years, mostly through the tweets and blog of my friend Brendan Dawes. To me he is Mr. 3D printing and has been tinkering away for while and has just received his latest machine, the Replicator 2.
