Mattel has created an awesome new toy for children that will allow them to 3D printer their own toys.
In the 1960s, the company created a toy they called the ThingMaker. Children would pour liquid plastic in molds, heat them up, and create their own plastic figurines.
Fast-forward to today and the company is set to release a $300 ThingMaker 3D. This affordable 3D printer will allow children to print almost anything they want using custom templates and patterns.
Desktop 3D printers are popular output devices for enthusiasts as well as engineers. Easy availability combined with ease of use makes these machines very attractive to many people and organisations.
The wide range of machines available can be confusing when you begin to examine the many options on offer. Our recommendation is to carefully review the 3D printers together with the stories from around the web to build a store of knowledge that will help you decide on the machine that is right for your purpose.
