Z Printer

Some time ago, I talked about the Z Printer 450. Now, has named it one of the 15 revolutionary inventions of 2007.

Released in March, the ZPrinter 450 represents a giant step in making high-definition color 3D printing available to the masses. The machine is the first color 3D printer to break the $40,000 price point, the most highly automated, and the most compatible with contemporary office environments. editors sifted through hundreds of inventions that became available in the past year to compile the list of innovative, practical and fun products. The ZPrinter 450 was listed third after the iPhone and the Kindle electronic reading device.

According to, "This technology could have a significant impact on many different industries that rely on models and landscapes."
