The company, true to its word, unveiled its new pricing structure for
the Solido SD300 Pro 3D printer at SolidWorks World 2010. It is not
quite the watershed price that some would have liked to have seen, but
it is certainly well below the $5000 benchmark that Desktop Factory
was aiming for this time last year.

$2950 for the machine — but with a bit of a sting in the tail,
unfortunately. The full Value Pack, which includes the printer, 8 (XY)
cuttings knives, 4 magnetic pads, 24 modelling kits (modeling
material, glue cartridge and anti-glue cassette), SDView software, a
12 month warranty and 12 months free software upgrade and hotline
support, costs $14,950.
