The future gets closer every day... :-)

Shapeways: Does the PLA material it prints have a comparable one in your line-up? (I'm afraid PLA means nothing to me)

it's printed on the same way white detail does?
but without support material?

not sure though!

PLA is Polylactic acid
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polylactic_acid

is a thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch (in the United States), tapioca products (roots, chips or starch mostly in Asia) or sugarcanes (in the rest of world). It can biodegrade under certain conditions, such as the presence of oxygen, and is difficult to recycle.

Thanks, Duann. It degrades in the presence of oxygen, eh? So, not good to make a house out of? :-)

Thank you for posting about our 3D printer kits we have available on indiegogo.

DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND WE HAVE RE-OPENED THE CAMPAIGN TO OFFER A SECOND ROUND OF PRE-SALE UNITS!

This is a limited time offer. Kits are being offered at a discount before they go on public release later this year.

I need something bigger for larger prints. Any ideas?

The Mendel (that the huxley is based on) has a build area of 200x200x140.
