Who would have thought that we would see a $200 printer this early! Looks like the MakiBOX by Jonathan Buford is currently the cheapest 3D printer around (please correct me in the comments if there is something cheaper). Now that Makerbot has gone through some drastic changes and is no longer open source are we going to see lots of low cost entry level machines fill the void? The current MakiBOX uses a 0.4mm nozzle can print 0.1mm layers. You can see lots of their previous pre-production versions on their Youtube site. Looks like there has been lots of refining over the months but just like any new machine there is sure to be some more fine tuning needed by the builder. Tweaking the printer to work just right might be half of the build fun though.
