When WebProNews hit Vegas for the CES 2010 conference, we came across a number of new and interesting gadgets.

The MakerBot’s CupCake CNC is a 3D printer/fabricator that can make just about anything you want. As long as the object you desire can be made out of ABS plastic and stays in a size range of 4″x4″x6".

Once the design is input using 3D modeling software or by visiting Thingiverse for a pre-made template, MakerBot turns the creation into reality. The machine begins ‘printing’ and soon after, a 3D model of the design requested materializes right before your eyes.

These 3D fabricators are priced between $750-$950 and have qualities that even attracted major companies like Google. The MakerBot representatives stated Google has invested in multiple CupCake CNCs.  For what?  We can only wonder….

    this is not any invention its just a low cost version of what you find for “rapid prototyping” on .g. wikipedia. The difference is the worsest quality (whats goin’ on never seen such deviances) you get compared to professional toolings.

    The sintering method of falling particles is used for decades… muuuahhhaaaa.

    The $750 price tag on the 3d printer really tells only half the story. Many times the cheapest printer for sale isn’t necessarily the cheapest printer to own. Printer ink is so expensive.
