I suppose this kind of price reduction was inevitable. We're beginning to reach the point where consumers will want one for the home. The challenge will be finding around-the-house applications for home users. I remember when PCs first came out and proponents of the technology said you could use your PC to store recipes. It seems people have found other, better applications since then. The same could happen for 3D printers.

That's a great price point for business use but beyond what most would pay for home.  I would opt for Staples myself at least at first.

I thought the Staples news was a big deal, and I looked forward to using their services in the distant future. Now knowing the price of the printer, I say why wait! A fair price for something that creates amazing work. Though, I do question the strength and usefulness of the paper enamel parts.

Solidworks World sounds like fun.

3D Printer Price Points

Pretty amazing price point.  I looked at the website and saw some impressive models being showcased.

Very innovative marketing channel through Staples (sort of like printing your photos out at the store).  Look forward to seeing this 3D technology continue to be used by more and more of the mainstream population.
