3Doodler Build & Play lets kids in on the 3D printing fun

3D printing has definitely changed how hobbyists and tinkerers make things, allowing them to be more in control of their projects rather than being at the mercy of professional manufacturers and assemblers. All that, however, has been mostly the purview of grownups who don't have a monopoly on imaginative creations. Just as the likes of LEGO are trying to get kids started early on robotics and programming, 3Doodler is doing the same with its new Build & Play set, designed for the youngest makers and dreamers.

Rolls-Royce made a 1:8 scale Cullinan SUV that costs more than a real car

Rolls-Royce has a new model, quite literally in fact, with a shiny scaled-down version of the Cullinan SUV that will cost you as much as a brand new - and full-sized - Toyota Yaris. The latest hand-finessed frippery from the British automakers boutique, the 1:8 scale Cullinan is astonishing in its level of detail - though then again perhaps that's what you'd expect from a hand-made model.

Phenom by Peopoly 3D printer Review: Massive and delicate

Phenom by Peopoly 3D printer Review: Massive and delicate

The Phenom by Peopoly is a $2k MSLA (LCD+LED) light-cured resin 3D printer with a big orange panel door. This device prints 3D objects with liquid resin, activated with lights - it pulls the print up from the goo, rather than printing the print from the bottom to the top with a melted line of material. This printer has been two things to me thus far: The easiest experience I've had with a 3D printer, and the deliverer of the most detailed final print quality I've yet seen in a personal 3D Printer (at 72 um).
