I would very much like to see some one make a 3D printed wind-up Phonograph, gramophone or Record Player. Something that uses as few or no electric parts..

I have a question also, i don't know if I'm in the right place for this but I was wondering about a good3d printer for a newbie would be, I saw this one on ebay, is this the way to go-(http://www.ebay.com/itm/3D-Printer-Machine-3D-Replicator-Comes-New-and-Already-Assembled-/221196426577?_trksid=p5197.m1992&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D14%26meid%3D5997719474340229714%26pid%3D100015%26prg%3D1006%26rk%3D1%26sd%3D221196426577%26)
I just want to make like small brakets and things like that for RC cars and Rc tanks and robotic ideas and whatever comes along. I would appreciate any input from somebody that has one and some experience with one, i would hate to buy it and find out I need 1000 dollars worth of software to also have to get. that would be my luck,lol

I've seen a cube that was actually made of beveled gears. That was kind of neat...
