3D printing is slowly becoming the next big thing. Over the last few weeks, we’ve heard of people making everything from blood vessels to kid-sized exoskeletons–the possibilities seem almost endless. But what if you’re too broke to buy yourself a 3D printer and too cool make yet another RepRep 3D printer? The answer is simple: cement your individuality and build yourself a Pwdr instead.
The current model can make use of materials like gypsum, ceramics, concrete, and sugar, to name a few. However, once the SLS process becomes fully supported, you will be able to construct things out of materials such as ABS, PP, Nylon and a variety of metals.
