  • 6. Industrial ● Fills up a small room ● $20,000 to $50,000 ● Used for prototyping ● Don't forget the ink! Production series from Stratasys
  • 7. Hobby Market ● Plastic (the ink) costs $30 a kilogram
  • 8. Question: How much would you pay for a 3D printer?
  • 9. RepRap ● Replicating Rapid Prototyper ● Print a printer from a printer – 70% to 90% ● Self-replicating printers! ● http://reprap.org Watch the video:
  • 10. MakerBot ● Early open source printer ● Became proprietary ● Acquired by Stratasys ● Printers range from $1200 to $7000 ● http://makerbot.com Cupcake
  • 11. Printrbot at Kickstarter ● Goal of $25,000 ● Raised $830,827 on Kickstarter
