So, the $46,000 dollar model would give you close to the same production values as LEGO (in terms of both quality and quantity)?
I guess what I'm asking is, these machines are suited towards businesses that need to do A LOT of printing (I'd imagine LEGO prints thousands a day). Are there printers out there that give you the same quality, but not the speed? You don't buy a printing press for your kids to print out their school book reports on, you buy a small printer. For a hobbiest, is there a "small printer" capable of printing on torsos with similiar quality, but designed for personal use instead commercial?
The beauty of a LEGO MOC is not the elements that go into it, but the way those elements are put together.
