    I’ve considered picking up one of these, I just have so many other projects going on, i’m not sure I would have the time to build it. I wonder if they offer pre-built kits, I know they used to. Check out the RepRap for some similar ideas.

    #1 item on my christmas list, no doubt about it

    I visited the School of Engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University several years ago and witnessed a 3d printer in action, and ever since have been obsessed with them. The one I saw was really cool because it had a vat of a special liquid that solidified when exposed to ultraviolet light, so there was a platform that starts at the top of the vat of liquid, where an ultraviolet laser draws out the first layer of the object, then the platform lowers, an arm moves over the platform to ensure there is a thin layer of liquid over the previously drawn layer, and the process repeats. Too cool.
