    Hello all, I am completely new to this forum and 3d printing in general. I have a little experience with Poser & Zbrush but I am looking for specific help. I have my own part time business making custom action figures, and every time I need a certain body part or accessory I have to usually buy a whole figure to get 1 certain item and it becomes costly and I end up with a lot of parts I don't need or want. I am looking to purchase an affordable desktop scanner and printer so I can scan and duplicate the parts I need as I need them. I know this may seem a little crazy to some, but also my son wants to learn 3d modeling and it would help later on for him as well. I would like some advice on equipment that isn't too crazy priced in case this doesn't work out as I want it to and don't want to lose too much money if I fail. I have a budget of up to $900.00. Thank you all in advance!!

    I pre-ordered the Flux Delta+ that should do all that and more. Expected to ship in July

    I like the Butter Knive Variation / Option on their site!

    If the movie Aliens has taught me anything, it's that robots can play that game better than people.
