Interesting product, could be fantastic and definitely a bit of future tech.
Reminds me a bit of the mr fusion on the delorian.

But will it output 1.21 gigawatts of
power to use the flux
capacitor ;)
tis Better to have tried and failed than never to have tried at all

Looks Useful for the future, but plastic printing doesnt really seem to be taking off that much.... At work we have Both a Plastic model prototyper and a full 3D Powder model printer; Although the plastic one is great, it doesnt really produce quite as much of a "Wow" effect.... Maybe they will get better with time?

Still... Fantastic Idea though, I'd love to know how much they would cost to run :lol:

What's the resolution on the plastic printer? What material does the powder printer use?

Been thinking more and more about building a cheap 3D printer as an exercise in making. Matt Little who designed the RGB board pointed out that you can PWM control three motors or servos with it too, thought it might be worth a try!

Now that sounds like a good idea and nice to see/hear you want to make one.

Will the RGB board be able to handle micro steps? If it does then you could also market it to the cnc/laser/3d world instead of spending 10x the price!

Would you go down the makerslide road?

Not sure about the resolution, but it prints to 0.5mm layers; its called a BFB Touch 3D... the powder printer is incredible and prints at something like 0.02 mm layers, I can find out more info about it if you are interested!
