Don’t expect to cruise down to your local Staples and pick up this printer any time soon.  The Alaris 30 Desktop 3D printer requires a CAD file and a $40,000 bank roll.  But once you’ve dragged the 180lb printer back to the office you’ll be knocking out detailed 3D models.

“It works by shooting out photopolymer in thin layers into a tray. These layers are cured right away using UV light. As each layer stacks on top of each other, the form becomes complete. It builds the model right before your eyes.”
