Not the best video, but the idea is pretty good. Interesting rethink of how a 3d printer can work without using many moving parts.

I was tempted to get it since i've been looking at 3d printers for a while, but the cost of the resin still make it a bit too expensive for me to impulse buy. It's 60$ for 1L of the regular resin and 45$ for 500ml of the flexible resin.

I like the idea of a 3d printer but hate the idea of how much plastic is going to be consumed in this.

One of the popular materials that are used in 3D printers is PLA (Polylactic acid). It's made from corn starch and is biodegradable. It also dissolves in hot water, so while you can make a cup out of it you don't want to use it for coffee.

I really like some of the applications that 3d printing can be used too, it's not just about making plastic objects. You can make molds to cast other objects. I went to a presentation that showed how jewelers work. They would carve out a mold, then if i remember properly would make the object in glass to use to make the final mold and heat it to get rid of the wax. With 3D printing, you can get rid of the carving step. I've also seen people 3D print objects and use them to make a sand mold and use it for metal casting.
Here's an instructable about

Sorry, the jeweler would make the object in wax, not glass.

You can also get metal 3D printers, but they are much more expensive. I couldn't find a price but some can be over half a million. There's also a site i found that will print metal objects if you send the design. Not sure what price you'd be looking at, but they can make from most metals like titanium, gold, silver and stainless steel.

JS man, you seem to really be into this 3D printing. And if it doesn't pollute nearly as much as I think then I'm all for it.

they have a $30,000 3D printer at work - it's pretty damn intense. I've seen a bunch of cool projects.Lots of future with this..
You can even print a gun!!

I did a lot of research to try and justify the price since i really want one. The closest i came to it was the Printrbot, they have a kit that you can assemble for 300$.
They had an episode of Elementary (really good show) that featured the printed gun. You do still need a piece of metal for the firing pin though, so it's not completely plastic. Also it's very dangerous since it will fail, possibly with the first shot, and most likely seriously injure you.

One of the nice things with the printrbot is that the filament is only 30$ + shipping for 1 Kg (21$ on sale), plus i think you can use third party products, you aren't stuck with only what they sell. Also they see a lot of different modules that can improve the printer that can be bought later, like an extension to the height so you can build larger objects. That's one of the disadvantages to the Peachy printer, you have to use the resin that they sell and if they go under, then it'll be a lot harder if not impossible to get it.

What would you print? And don't say a gun because that's ridiculous.

That's kind of the problem, i'm not sure. There are a lot if things to print on
, but i have a feeling i'd just end up with a lot of small plastic objects everywhere. I'd definitely make a companion cube.
