Gigabot – large-scale 3D printing

3D printing is taking a big step forward with the Gigabot, a Kickstarter project that aims to produce a 3D printer with a massive 24x24x24″ build envelope!  Ready-to-assemble kits cost $2500 (pay more if you want it assembled for you).  Cool stuff, though I’m not quite sure the market is ready for this (apart from those people wishing to print cool lamp shades…).
