Have you seen the price of the consumable filament!

Gonna need to shield the electronics a lot better if you're using a MIG nearby.

The plan is to use granulate (much cheaper) in the future.

We acquired a 'RapMan' for our deparment . I teach Technical Education or "techy" as it's known in Scotland.

Our pupils seemed to have no problem with the concept of a 3D printer...

We've been producing models in ProENGINEER exporting as .STL and converting to G Code using Skeinforge.

Photos here;

The filament is about 45 for 5kg at the moment.

Cheers
JC
