My Impressions:

MakerBot printers have a very sleek and smooth design, in my opinion Maker Bot has the best looking 3D printers out there. Maker Bot also sells a great looking digitizer, which allows you to scan in 3D models of objects right from your home. Then you can modify or improve your models from there. Very very cool! MakerBot also has a wide variety of 3D printers, making it easy to find one that suits your needs.

3D printing is going to explode over the next 3-10 years, I am looking forward to the ways people are going to use it to change our lives forever. Over the next few years look for 3D printers to become more affordable as well. But there has never been a better time to jump into the world of 3D printing than now.
