3D Printers go Mainstream

Well, it has finally happened. 3D printers have gone mainstream. Officeworks, a chain of office supplies stores in Australia, is now selling a 3D printer for the very reasonable price of $1499. Makerbot has been selling cheap 3D printers for a while now, but the fact that you can finally walk into a local retail chain and pick one up speaks volumes about the 3D printing explosion just around the corner. 

Check out their sales pitch. 

"Voted MAKE magazines easiest to use and most reliable 3D printer."
"Just plug it in and start"
"has WiFi"
"certified for safe at home use"
Big things are just around the corner.
