I still have my daughters 3D printer. I've been slightly consumed with using TinkerCad and making several one of parts for myself. It's amazing just how many R/C plane/heli parts are out there for download in the Thingiverse and on many other sites. You almost don't have to use a CAD program anymore unless you need something just plain weird. Depending on the size of the item printed it will take much longer to create than a laser but at UNDER $200.00 USD for a good 3D printer. Cost for 3D printing wins hands down over laser for me. 3D won't cut wood of course but you can't make wooden parts appear out of thin air with a laser "cutter".........
