Remember when the idea of printing any object you could dream up was total sci-fi bologna? Those days are over. The future is now, and 3D printers are here. We’re giving one away from Makerbot, your chance at experiencing unadulterated techie bliss.

You have the option of either utilizing pre-made templates or designing your own printed objects from scratch. Once you’ve decided how ambitious you want to be, go ahead and print anything from kitchen utensils to figurines formalized in the depths of your imagination. A Captain America statuette? A vase? Miniature models of the Empire State Building? All are possible with this powerful yet compact printer, one that puts creation itself at your fingertips.
You’ll be the talk of the town, for sure. Your co-workers will glare at you in envy for all your self-printed desk trinkets. Your friends and family will shower you with adoration upon receiving some of the most unique gifts they may have ever seen (we recommend a miniscule turtle sculpture, a real crowd pleaser).
