Interesting bits from the news --- Amazon, Morgan, Buccaneer

Post by WillAdams » Tue Jun 18, 2013 4:49 pm

First off, Amazon has added a 3D printer category: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_ex_n_1?r ... 1371573871 34 printers thus far --- it'd be an interesting venue to sell a 3D kit from.

The RepRap Morgan is getting a lot of media coverage for its sub $100 price: http://www.zdnet.com/will-this-100-repr ... 000016742/ I'm still looking for a full b.o.m. though.

And the Buccaneer folks are trending up towards $1,000,000 on Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pir ... ne-can-use w/ another 10 days to go.

Thanks for the links, I hadn't heard about the morgan (although I think it was mentioned while I was reading about the simpson. After poking around a bit, I found the BOM on their github page: https://github.com/qharley/Morgan/tree/master/source
