There are a lot of choices for entry level 3D printers now. Here's a link to the one I use. It's not the cheapest nor is it the most expensive. BUT it is very reliable and seems to work a lot better than many of the others. Afinia 3D printer ----> www.afinia.com/3d-printers

Man these are sweet! :D  
How is the cost/gain ratio for producing and selling these?

they cost very little in materials, but the man-hours for cleanup and assembly drive the price up too much for this to be a practical *print a toy on demand* scenario

Ah that makes sense...I hadn't though of the painting or texturing.
Have you thought of making a model kit so people can put it together themselves (to save on assembly and finishing costs/time)?

yeah, I have thought of that but I always seem to get distracted by the desire to make new stuff and can't seem to focus on one design long enough to actually make any kits.

Understandable. :nod:
I imagine it would be quite a pain to figure out a good layout for a pieced out kit, too.

These are really tempting, I wonder if I should commission you for articulated models of the Metal Frames someday...

Hello. I am glad you like them :D
Sorry to report that I don't accept commissions for the 3D modeling and printing stuff.

Not a problem, I don't mind just being able to look.
