I think it's ridiculously expensive for something that could be done easily for less. Doesn't even include the necessary scanner.

No software and no scanner just the mount and turntable. I really don't see how he came to that price tag either...

Is he (printrbot) still releasing designs for non-commercial use or has that all stopped?

599.00 is a bit out of my price range, looks interesting though. If it came with the kinect it would be reasonable, but more like 400.

You can do it yourself much cheaper with an xbox kinect and some software called Skanect.
Not my video but found this which shows you a bit about it:

I think there is some free software called Brekel that might work too.

You can always do it with photos too. There's some software called Agisoft PhotoScan that lets you take a load of photos of an object and then recompile them into a 3d model and then apply a photo texture to it.

I actually just picked up a kinect from GameStop for 30$. Plugged it into Skanect to make sure it worked, messed around for a couple minutes. Pretty cool stuff, for 100$ I could have a rather nice/cheap setup.

I have used it, It's not bad. Tried it on my iphone. However the model I scanned causes constant crashing on every platform for some reason, ipad, iphone, computer. Not sure why. Worked well the first time. The only thing is the models will require some post processing/cleaning up if you want to have a decent print. Its certainly fun to play with, but I feel like there are better options available.

I do like that it is totally free if you have one of the supported devices. Most cleanup software is also free, although that does add a step.
