Really Cost Effective?

While the cost of 3D printers going down is an exciting development, I am wondering how practical they are considering the costs of the filament cartridges and how much real use you would have with one. I know when we first starting getting really cheap inkjet printers, the cost of the ink cartridges often offset any cost savings realized by a cheaper printer. I don't know enough - but I am wondering if buying one of these 3D printers will put you in the same predicament?

You might also look at the new line of 3D printers from Solidoodle.

I have one on order for home, My various hobbies will benifit greatly from fabrication of one off items.

My work is going to get a surprise for my next project prototype as well.

The fabric described here seems more like felt than cloth, but it is impressive that it can be made at all.  Certainly a starting point for future developments.

I agree, Greg. The fabric printer surprised me, too. There must be a way for the apparel industry to benefit from this technology.

Fabric printer makes a bear that is a little scary... but it's a great step towards a new use.

The 3D fabric printer really caught my eye in this article.  This is clearly an innovative new approach to 3D printing.  Future applicatoins could include custom logos or better form-fitting apparel as the technology advances and smaller fibers are able to be manipulated.
