3D- printer



"Name: Desktop Factory 125ci 3D Printer

Material: Nylon-based powder (laced with aluminum and glass) Price: $4,995

What it does: Closest in spirit to industrial-strength fabbers, this 90-pound version focuses light from a halogen lamp to melt shapes in powder on a rotating drum, which plops the layers onto a flat surface for stacking and drying. Keep in mind that coffee mugs, toy ducks and other objects coming out of its 125-cubic-inch building bay will have a coarse, gray look to them. The manufacturer recommends giving your creations a good sanding—and maybe a paint job.

Where to get one: The company is sold out. Reserve one at for shipment in 2009." (
