3D Printers

11 Aug

3D printers have been there for a while, but are becoming commercially viable now. I have been through the specs for Z technologies’s model 650, which has a printing volume of 12,000 cubic inches. Pretty usable for prototyping a lot of stuff. You can find a lot of demos on youtube for this stuff. I specially liked a model aircraft that was “printed”.

I wonder how green the technology really is, as no one knows what constitutes the pixie dust and how environment friendly is it to manufacture.

However, they are fun to watch… and the results look awesome. Have a look !
