I was working in an office of a Design Firm yesterday when I noticed this odd machine in one room.
Somehow I was drawn to it and just had to understand what it was?

This is so freaky I would not have believed it if I had not seen it......to be honest I did see it and I still don't believe it?

This is not the same exact machine I saw but if you watch the demo video you get the idea.


I am surprised what a bargain it is,anyone want to go in on one with me?

We have one where I work, pretty nifty for a quick
prototype part to play with.

Here is another one that uses sand to make the 3d model, pretty cool. You just send them a 3d CAD file and they send you the model:

My dentist used some new type of similar machine to create the new crown for my tooth a few weeks ago, based on photos he took of my mouth. I got to watch the machine cutting and grinding out the new cap.
