    Yeah, shit is getting real. With HP and Dremel in the market, these things are being clearly targeted at regular folk. I suspect they will start getting better much faster. Hopefully bigger, too!

    Well, the Dremel one is actually just a rebranded existing 3D printer of, what I've been told, average quality. The HP one however is completely new.

    I think the "guts" of the Dremel are a rebrand, but I don't think the unit itself it. It has some neat features that others don't.

    Nope, it's a rebrand:

    Aren't they 'printing' metal bits from metal dust? Is that process not able from the plastics side?

    I'm not sure how useful printing plastic from powder would be. They have a way to extrude filament from plastic pellets and there's a few machines that will make the pellets by grinding plastic waste, like water bottles, etc.

    One of the more awesome uses of 3D printing is having a 3D printer in a place where it's hard to transport physical goods, like the space station:
