Just came across this, and wanted to pass it along.
I'm sure this has not gone unnoticed, especially considering the enthusiastically followed 3D printer threads here.

They mention a max weight for the turntable but not a max size. Can't be all that big, but still.... NICE! :)

Not too bad, if a little soft looking.

Can it also make a diffuse texture map?

No texture maps. It's really made for low cost 3D printers that print 1 or 2 colors max.
