A 3D Printer Anyone Can Afford

I recently watched an episode of The Big Bang Theory.  It was the one where Raj and Howard decide it’s a good investment to purchase their own miniature version action figures.  And then it doesn’t turn out so well, so they purchase a used 3D printer “for only” 1,000 bucks and make their own dolls [...]

In developed countries, one of the things we frequently take for granted is access to electricity, specifically, handy access to light.
