    I was able to see this once with my brother in law. He took me and my nephew to a friends job and let my nephew create a toy and have it “printed” out. It was one of the most amazing things I have seen by far. It was so much fun for all of us, and my nephew made a one of a kind toy.

    Dmitry, despite what you may think, the speed of the video (in the beginning) is not fast-forward. This gives you a rough idea: 10 times faster than 2 minutes and a half.

    Half an hour is a normal time for such a “3D printer” to produce a small part like the one on this video. Some much bigger equipment do not go much faster but can produce parts as large as a meter (3 feet) in a matter of an hour or so.
