    Peachy 3D printer. Under $100.

    Just spotted this 3D printer on the net.

    The Peachy Printer - The First $100 3D Printer & Scanner! by Rinnovated Design — Kickstarter

    It's a 3d printer that with a big enough tank could build whatever you want.

    It's just ticked over to 1800 backers as I was writing this.

    Hopefully they can get over the 5k orders to make it even better. Might email my manager for the school, should be able to get a few

    Saw this the other day but not 100% sure about it at the moment, the requirement for salt water makes me wonder tbh.

    $120 CAD = £72

    The interface s/w is a plugin for blender.

    Another 21 backers in 10mins.

    Yeah, I do wonder how accurate the water solution will be.

    Not sure if was coincidence but the program looked like it measured the water drop size. Think it was as I can't see how two wires can do that. How accurate is a simple dripper?

    A new gadget to buy on payday though along with the rc40 light.

    Saw this. Watching it mildly interested. Discussed going halfsies with a friend for one (It's not something either of us would use enough to warrant buying one outright, plus, if it doesn't work too great, less financial loss for us both)

    I'd assume the wires measure the rate of drip. Drips will be reasonably accurate - their size is largely controlled by surface tension, gravity, viscosity and nozzle size - none of which will vary much once you know what the numbers are. So as long as you know the rate and can control that, you should have a very accurate delivery system.
