Anyone have a spare $1000?

So, this is a thing:

for $1000 you can get this nifty little machine. Resolution is 0.1mm on the highest setting. I can see a lot of possibilities here.

Well, one person might not, but 10 people might have a hundred bucks each. Imagine the savings. Madness.

Oh it will definitely still be frowned upon if you're making shitty low-resolution 3-D printed figures and trying to use them in games but think of the possibilities once high-resolution 3-D printers become more common (this one is a step in the right direction). I don't think I could make a good model even with my 3-D computer modelling training but there are people out there who can and will. You'll be able to download the codes and print your models yourself. I'd probably use it for terrain at first but really, a whole army could be printed in theory. So long as it isn't used to break copyright laws or infringe on trademarks and that sort of thing I think it could be a valid and useful tool in the hobby.

Now terrain id be 100% in for I think that would be awesome and allow for more options in sizes and detail.
