3D printing. Sure, that’s pretty neat, but there are other ways to make three dimensional objects at home. Roland’s new iModela, for example, is an “affordable” ($ 899) digital hobby mill that can carve 3D shapes, jewelry, textures and prototypes out of balsa wood, foam, modelling wax and plastics. Projects definitely need to be more on the petite side, but the 3.39inch x 2.17inch x 1.02inch milling area should be good for a wide range of small craft creations. The iModela comes with all the cutting tools, software and materials you need to get started, but if you’ve already been tinkering with ideas, there’s also compatibility with other “popular” CAD software.
