That is too cool. I'm especially impressed that the 3D printer can print moving parts already assembled.
Saw something like in at the Sema show in Vegas. Cool stuff.
Very cool stuff.
I wonder what kind of tolerances that 3D scanner can hold. I've worked with some larger laser scanners that can measure a contour within .002in or so, depending on distance to the part, but for a small, inexpensive scanner like the one shown in the vid, who knows. Might make a difference if you're fabricating tight tolerance parts.
Either way, I still want one.

Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?
