We have the 3D printers here at the Uni, cost is $5 a cubic inch of plastic. Anyone know if thats a good deal or not? I have no idea. Thanks, kv #### joeyd999 Joined Jun 6, 2011 4,623 We have the 3D printers here at the Uni, cost is$5 a cubic inch of plastic.

If you need to make a 3D model, and you have no alternatives, \$5/cu. in. sounds reasonable.

I pay much more for high-resolution SLAs.
