Sure, we've heard about the DesktopFactory $5000 3D printer, but who's seen them in the stores? Meanwhile, you could always build your own Fab@Home or RepRap 3D printer - if you are handy with a soldering iron.
However, we found a shop that sells Fab@Home kits, or even preassembled units at a lower cost than even DesktopFactory. And they are available today! Koba Industries' Prostores offers several different kits in various stages of assembly. A pure kit is priced at USD$3100, while a mostly-assembled kit is USD$3600.
