How did you find out about this, I can't find it on their website other than your link.

Hello Rorschach
I went to hotukdeals first but its spread and I think they may be in demand judging by the take up in Australia may be better to order online

and a few other places

Ahh I see, I guess Aldi release press statements on these things to drum up free advertising.

While it looks a good deal, it would be nothing more than a toy for me, I have no practical use for a 3D printer. I would much prefer a small 4 axis cnc mill.

:shock:
a 3-axis would do me!

What would you do with a 4-axis?

There are several 3D items I could produce on a 4axis mill with rotary head that just would be awkward to do on a 3axis mill, it would require flipping the part over and workholding would be a problem. I guess I could probably get away with a manual 4th axis to rotate the part 180deg but most 3 axis mills are limited in their Z height.
