3D Printing Anyone doing their own?

The manufacturing company I work for is heavily into 3D printing for prototyping and has been for a long time.

I've seen the advances and plummeting prices for the printers and wondering of anyone here is doing their own, what printer they're using etc.

Thanks much

Not yet Douglas...

 

There's a great difference between the resources at the disposal of a Manufacturing Company, and that of the average Modeller. Anything around the price range that I would find reasonable for such a set-up, is still producing objects that require excessive clean-up.

So not for me yet, I'm sorry.

Jeroen, seeing people mention Shapeways is where I got the idea from.

I imagined that they use industrial printers, i.e., accurate and very fast. Speed would be the main thing in making it profitable I would think.

I'm just starting to investigate the current status of "affordable" 3D printers and trying to get a grip how good one has to be in order to create model quality pieces.
