What you're suggesting does not correspond to 3DSystems stated aims.
"With the acquisition of Bits From Bytes, 3D Systems takes the next
major step towards democratizing access to 3D printing - a stated
strategic direction and ongoing commitment," said Abe Reichental,
President and CEO, 3D Systems.

A lot of people are not too thrilled about this piece of news. My first
question is: What is their motivation? Folks have suggested that 3D
Systems wants a piece of that business. Should we really believe that 3D
Systems wants to get in the business of selling high volume low cost 3D
fabbers at very low margins?

Why has the "Shop" button been disabled? New pricing perhaps?

Any thoughts?

I was saving money to buy one to have here at home. Now I'm not sure.
