Just posted: my review of the Lulzbot TAZ 3 3D Printer review.
The TAZ 3 is designed for the serious user who is looking for a flexible 3D printer with a large build volume. Lulzbot uses an open-source design, which means it releases all of its designs and software for anyone to download. You can build your own TAZ 3 if you want, with off-the-shelf parts costing about $950.
Just posted on Toms Guide: a review of the Sense 3D Scanner, from 3D Systems.
If you have a 3D printer, you have probably downloaded and printed a few objects, and then moved on to building your own — only to realize that 3D modeling is difficult. Often, it is easier to model an object in clay and then scan it, or just scan an existing object. That’s what the $400 Sense 3D scanner from 3D Systems does: scans an object and creates a 3D model that can be modified on a computer and printed from a 3D printer or online printing service.
