I am still looking for the "3D Printer" to support the masses....... while
one spectrum rushes after the dollars of global funding agencies, I wish
for an economical system for education which attracts little or no funding.
 I am amazed that the overall reason for not using or purchasing a RP
system is always price yet the prices of systems have yet to drop to levels
of affordable.

While discussing a low cost system, someone quietly said there were several
systems that could be marketed cheaply yet the developers saw no market.
Guess they think like the old IBMer who saw no reason for a PC. Funding
agencies who push education really mean selective education.........I guess.
