DreamVendor Prints 3D Objects, Not Dreams

by Lambert Varias

3D printing is the bee’s knees, but we’re not printing our masterpieces yet – 3D printed essays! Yeah! – because 3D printers are still quite expensive, and of course 3D modeling isn’t exactly common knowledge. Virginia Tech has a solution for the former problem: the Dream Vendor.

The Dream Vendor resides in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech. It doesn’t sell its services because anyone can use the machine for free. The Dream Vendor is made up of four Thing-O-Matics, an old model of 3D printers from MakerBot. Instead of money, users insert an SD card containing the 3D template and the Dream Vendor – which we now realize is misnamed – will print the object.

I wonder if it’s possible to print another Dream Vendor part-by-part.
