Our friends at RapidToday files hardware reports direct from users of several new (and some beta) 3D printers. Included in their report are:

  • iPro 9000 – Is said to be much more reliable than the previous Viper Pro systems, but still has issues in the control interface.
  • ZPrinter 650 – Has new features, but is mostly praised for its greatly increased reliability, but the user seeks more choice in build media.
  • Alaris30 – Has transformed the business process of one company, but they wish the build chamber was larger and could use more than one material.

Kerry Stevenson, aka "General Fabb" has written over 8,000 stories on 3D printing at Fabbaloo since he launched the venture in 2007, with an intention to promote and grow the incredible technology of 3D printing across the world. So far, it seems to be working!

  1. HP isn’t the first company to experiment with affordable 3D printing. The Makerbot was a 3D printer that was released last April, and only costs $750… but it’s a DIY construction affair.

    HP intends on doing one better: although their proposed HP Stratasys line of printers will be more expensive than the Makerbot, at $1500, but be a lot easier to use and set-up. That may seem expensive… but that is similar to the price of a laser printer when they were first released, and we can expect that price to come down over time.
