Anyone know the expenses involved in 3D printing? (Fan Creations)

My brother has this Printrbot one that costs $600. A kilogram of 3D Printer Filament is about $20-25 on Amazon, and you could print a lot with that.

I have been using his printer to make a full-scale Hawkmoon (broken up into multiple parts due to the size limitations of the printer).

For an initial investment of $600, you could start churning out replica guns at less than $20 a piece on average.

Aside from the initial $600 printer purchase, the mostexpensive part of the process would be buying the model paint and brushes. That stuff is not cheap.
