hi all... i'm also kinda interested in building one of these 3d printers... but still have to come up with a justification (to the MoF) for the need to have such printer though.... hahaha.... i want to use it to make parts for my rc hobby (rims/wheels and such)....

my first Q is regarding the rigidity/strength of the final product... will it be as strong as moulded ABS parts? as it is only laid layer by layer by the hot end and not feed with certain pressure as moulded ABS...

and can somebody do a write up or provide the list of the parts needed...  and the tuts on designing and setting processes... total noob here

thanks in advance

From my experience printed ABS is quite durable. Strength also depends on how you design you parts. I have seen in thingiverse a printed RC car. You might want to check it out. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:19196

I'm watching the result of MAKE's 3D print review before deciding whether it's going to be worth the time & money to have one. Some of the 15 3D printers being tested:

Depending on the printer print bed size and also height of z axis.
Typically, about 15cm x 15cm x 10cm for a normal reprap printer

ABS supplies from me cost from RM8x~ RM1xx. Depend on how heavy each row is.

Btw ABS is advised to be printed on heated bed.
