MakerBot Thing-o-Matic Prints 3D Things

Working with 3D software is really a joy when you get the results you’re after. The process; however, can be long and tedious as you will have to model, surface, light and animate your objects and scenes. But when you’re done, and everything is all set, then you can create things that even your best friend doesn’t know isn’t real. It’s all in the detail and the lighting. When animating, it’s really important to get the gravity of things right otherwise that’s the one thing that will give your whole project away as fake. Recently we have seen another way to realize your 3D objects, and that’s through 3D printing. The trade has, for a long time, been costly and only available to a few fortunate people, but that is all about to change. 3D printing is said to become the next big thing since it will allow us to print pretty much whatever we want, even food some say.

MakerBot Industries is first out with their MakerBot. It’s a personal 3D printer that you build yourself. You get all the blueprints and the parts. All you have to do is assemble it, and off you go. The machine is connected to your computer through a USB cable. Why this is so groundbreaking is because until now, the only access to a 3D printer for most people has been through watching science fiction.

Now you can get your very own MakerBot Thing-o-Matic for just $1,225.00! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about this piece of technology. I wish I had the chance to review it for real to make a real statement about its capabilities. With every day that passes, 3D printers become cheaper and better, so let’s announce that the age of the 3D printers has begun! Geektastic!
