AMONG THIS GROUP OF FAIRLY DIMINUTIVE 3D PRINTERS, THERE WAS ONE HEAVYWEIGHT: Bits from Bytes’ 3DTouch, one of the most impressive 3D printers aimed at the low-cost market. It’s also one of the most expensive, prices at $3,490-$4,370. The 3DTouch is impressively built: with its massive, milled-steel connectors, it literally towered above the competition. It seemed as if it could engulf some of it’s competitors on its build – or perhaps print one out.
