    After seeing my brother's little printer in action I feel I now too need one (surprised it took me this long honestly)

    Anyone have one that they NEEDED to have, used a few times and is collecting dust? or one they outgrew? or maybe one that had something die on it and needs repairs?

    I really want one but I feel like every time I look at them I feel like it's too soon to buy one.

    For the price you paid for crazy ramps you could have likely 3D printed your own :P

    lol

    I mean too soon as in they are still so new that they are priced high and every company seems to be doing their own thing. Feel like after a few more years the cost will come down and the kinks worked out

    You can literally buy every component and build one yourself if you want. The one my brother has you can 3D print parts to build yourself a bigger printer using the one you buy. There is a TON of stuff out there being done with them. While I don't doubt price will come down some there is already a ton of support out there for them (from what I can gather in talking to a few people who use them).

    Seems like it would be a good thing to cost share with a couple friends.

    I thought about doing this with my brother but I live in the middle of the woods and he lives in the city out of my way on the way home. Him being a pilot would leave me with access to it for days but it's just a pain in the ass; thus this post.

    One of the people on my team at work left last year to work full time on his 3D Printing Youtube channel (The 3D Printing Nerd). Definitely, a ton of interest if he could leave a high paying high tech gig to make Youtube videos full time.
