    That is too cool. I'm especially impressed that the 3D printer can print moving parts already assembled.

    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?
