3D Printing Discussion fun!

I just starting doing some research on in-house 3D printing for my organization for test equipment and prototyping.


Right now, with my current directive I can prove cost with my current choice, but that's not the only factor- of course our engineering department wants a 21st century toy. Come on, who wouldn't! I've been in contact with my VAR, but I figured I would speak with the community as well.


  • I am mostly interested in R.Protoyping small (12 inches or less), and/or components for non production test equipment.
  • Right now I am eyeing the MakerBot Replicator +.
    • Anyone have any experience with this printer?
  • I am concerned with the cost of upkeep, and material replacement.
