I'm really interested how a 3D printer could be usful in a workshop. Printing tools, jigs, etc... In this video I build checkout a cheap 3D printer kit. Enjoy:

Waiting for metal 3d printing to become affordable, may be a while.

Interesting! Thanks for sharing @AndrewJones. So it costs around $270 and takes 20 hours or so to build. Do they sell them already assembled? Or what does a similar 3D printer that does come assembled cost?

 

Also, I really like how you include the #fails.
