Mainstreaming 3D

You know when something is becoming mainstreamed when even Dremel are putting out a 3D printer, and Apple & Google are also rumoured to be working on the same (and filing patents as they go).

  
The Dremel unit is still estimated to cost about 3-4 times as much as I paid for mine (estimated to be about $2k landed in Oz if/when it gets here). $US1000

Mine also has about 3.5x the build area, so there is still some benefits to what the maker community is producing, but the commercial operators will catch up pretty quickly.
Interesting times
