Yeah, I dont have a laser cutter . . . . Yet . . . .

I need
£6000 for one. Anyone wanna lend me £6200? :)

Another use for these is in the service of decentralizing MakerBot production, RepRap style.

Cool.... but opens a interesting question.. This part take longer to print than laser cut, so since the shape is not complex or layered enough to benefit from printing, then is it in a production environment of the MakerBot actually worth printing a part which can be laser cut faster..? :-D

Yeah a very good point. In my opinion printing these parts doesn't make sense for large scale makerbot production. I see these being much better used as either backups or upgrades to be printed by the user.

  • well, production is one thing, but Im thinking a lot of CupCake owners might not have a laser sitting around. So in that case it is really is what you said, a download able hardware upgrade. the question about speed and production time only is meaningful in general manufacture of the makerbot perspective.
