Hummm, interesting idea. So price points a $1000, really? DIY or kits for many CNC's are available upto 12 x 12 for less with fewer materials restrictions as well.

Will be nice to see some of the materials and samples produced. I'm sure we could find "other" resins and materials suitable...hehe...!

I have some ideas where I could use this a some craft and hobby shows to produce molds for use with various other materials or metals that this small CNC could not directly handle itself.

Even plastic parts can now be sprayed with conductive metallic paint and then electroformed easily. Print, spray and then plate.

Still much to small for that price.

Fantastic device but price a little bit high for me.
