It's part of the process of growing up where our parents gently break us in to the realities of our expectations -vs- the harsh cruel realities of the consumer world :mrgreen:

Is the RotoMAAK open source? I want to make one that's round instead of square so it'll look like the machine in Contact. :-)

I made this machine to fill a need I had in making multiple copies of salesman samples, took it to Detroit maker faire and go many people asking where I got it , I never really at that point intended to Mfg. these, but demand I have heard over the past 6 months I have went ahead and decided to sell these.
A few people from here has seen this in person and also commented on the design and a definite need that it can bridge between 1 off printing and making faster copies of it to mass producing with injection molds etc.
take a look and pass it on to everyone you know .

Prior to getting my Rostock, I looked into casting basically because the accuracy of the finished product is sooo much better than printing. Of course, if you are casting a printed object, then what you print is what you cast. If that is what you want then you are good to go. CNC machining your mold and then casting can be an extremely precise way to make "fiddly bits" such as gears.

And as you've pointed out, the speed is much faster too.

Man that alumilite resin he uses in that video sets up awfully fast, I have been casting for a while and would recommend using something else, especially for a beginner.
