Prototyping Tools

At only $1,000, I was quite tempted to pick this up and make cool custom pieces for my prototypes. What stopped me wasn't the price; it was the realization of how much time I'd have to put into learning how to program the thing. For a game designer wannabe with a real life to tend to in between playtests, time is the ultimate resource constraint. Anyway, watch the video through to the end, it's pretty nifty to think I could have such a device.

    This is definitely a much better alternative to buying and running your own 3D printer.
