Top 3D Printer under $5,000
I’ve been following this company and their high profile inventor and visionary founder for the last year. MakerBot Industries tops my list as the best value. Don’t let the name fool you, their “Cup Cake CNC” 3D printer is under the $1,000 mark and they have uploaded ALL their drawings, parts lists and everything that would allow the ambitious person to build their own system.
As I’ve watched these folks, they have continued to push the envelop of innovation with their Plastruder MK3. This nifty little head, takes a thin roll of ABS plastic and melts this material as the work bed lowers. If you are a person that loves CNC machines, and enjoys tinkering, this is a must see!
