Roland have released the iModela, a desktop 3D mill aimed at the consumer market.
... the iModela is an inexpensive ($1000), easy-to-use (cough) desktop device that mills
wax, foam, balsa wood and plastic materials commonly used in craft and
iModela also comes with iModela Creator design software to create and mill shapes, holes, textures and patterns along with free-hand drawing tools so users
can sketch out "more complex ideas". With iModela Creator, users can
either download a file or create original 3D models and designs right on
a personal computer.
Friday is the day we take a look at some of the latest 3D printing awesomeness to be shared in the It Arrived and Feature This sections of the Shapeways Forums. Be sure to share your models as they arrive to inspire the Shapeways community and staff. We especially love seeing any post production techniques realized on your 3D prints.
