iModela 3D Milling Machine Creates Tiny Figures on Your Desktop

3D printers and mills are finally getting to the point where regular Joes can afford them, so it’s only natural that they start by targeting them at kids. Japanese company Roland DG has announced a tiny 3D milling machine called the iModela iM-01 that looks really awesome.

The iModela costs about $1,000(USD), definitely not a kid-friendly price. For that price, you get a device that is nice and compact for your computer desk and uses a USB connection to access the associated software for the 3D models you want to make. Basically, it allows you to make your own action figures, milling them from plastic, wax, balsa wood, or foam.

After you make a figure, you can then paint the details on. As you can see from the video, it’s not the speediest process, and in a few years we will probably have a machine that can create fully painted figures in under a minute. For now, this is still a pretty sweet toy-making machine.
