We're not quite to the point where everybody has a 3D printer
sitting on their desktop, spewing out conceptual widgets and free energy
devices, but by golly if we aren't getting close. The ZPrinter 350 from Z Corporation
is the latest, a (relatively) compact machine that uses easy snap-in cartridges of material and automatically recycles any waste created during production. It sports a 300 x 450 dpi resolution, can create objects that are up to 8 x 10 x 8-inches, and while its printing speed doesn't exactly seem blazing (just .8-inch per hour vertically), that's apparently the fastest on the market. All that for only $25,900! We can't wait to see what Steorn
will create with theirs.
