MakerBot

“By now you’ve most certainly heard about the Replicator, a $1,750 3-D printer made by the Brooklyn start-up MakerBot, due next month. If not, the significance of the Replicator is that it is the first 3-D printer to break the $2,000 barrier, with higher resolution and a lower price than MakerBot’s Thing-O-Matic, which was released last year. In addition to being cheaper, the Replicator can also make bigger things, as large as a football (up to 8.9 x 5.7 x 5.9 inches).” http://gadgetwise.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/01/23/3d-printing-for-the-masses-markerbots-new-replicator/
