Glowforge - The 3D Laser Printer

Admit it, you want one now after seeing this. I know I do. But as of right now, it has priced itself out. BIG TIME. Way to expensive. Even the "basic" version is too much for me.

Since I can't 3D model, it's a moot point.  But you can always check to see if there's a makerspace or something in your area, they sometimes have 3D printers that you can use.

Heck, I barely use my 2D printer!

That is very cool. I wonder how thick of wood and kinds of wood it can cut?

What's the pricing?

Anyone with a creative side would welcome this into their home. I already have a ton of ideas as to what I'd use it for personally. But as you said, it's too expensive. Not if, but when the price comes down or there are other cheaper alternatives that allow you to use whatever material you want, that's when I'd consider this type of 3D printer. I can wait.

There is nothing I have that I could sell to justify that price.
