    If they were more available and the plastic is cheap I would. Instead of buying small stuff on eBay, mounts etc just print one off what would you use it for?

    I'm not that imaginative. I'd probably just browse through programs people made up, find what's cool, and print out that stuff.

    There are a few data bases around with designs already made, some are free which I think will help enormously with the production of day to day items.

    Yeah I would love one. Probably make demo stuff and little adapters.

    I personally can't think of a use for one, but I bet my creative kids could!

    Oh for sure! I'd love to play with one. Just wouldn't know what I'd use it for.

    If I could ever find the time there is a hackerspace down here that has one. For those not familiar with the term, a "hackerspace" (also called a "makerspace") allows affordable access to specialized tools like 3D printers, laser cutters, etc to a group, usually for a monthly fee. Think of it as a gym, but instead of using fitness equipment, you get to use geeky stuff like 3D printers and the like.

    OMG! I haven't even had a chance to look into it and you beat me to the punch. This looks amazing. It's not terribly close to me, but close enough for me to check out. So exciting.

    I bought a Printrbot Simple Metal two weeks ago. This has been the most fun I have had with any nerdy device since I got my Pebble.
