For small hobby thingys, at a price of $899
milling area of 3.39 inches wide by 2.17 inches in length and 1.02 inches in height.

It is utterly uggly thou, like some bad toaster.

It's not a printer though, it's a milling machine. For an actual 3D printer you could always get a MakerBot (http://store.makerbot.com/thing-o-matic-kit-mk7.html). It has a print area of 96 x 108 mm and a build height of 115 mm.

Ah..nice..but Itīs an assembly kit you have to mount yourself I guess?
but anyway, Itīs more of interest than Imodela Iīd say.
Maybe..still to small build size, 200x200x200 mm would be nice.

iModela is quite cool, has really great resolution, though it's milling.

for 3Dprint, (downside is lower resolution) check the $500 printbot...

Thanks ..might be to low resolution thou for my liking, and why canīt they show more printed samples?, lots of photos of the machine but not what you get as end result..thats bad market.

Do you have to use Roland boards or you can use other stuff. 50$ a board is a bit pricey...
