Currently seeking backers on indiegogo, the FABtotum might just be the ultimate desktop fabricator.

More than just an FDM 3D printer, the unit also has 2D milling suitable for carving everything from wood to circuit boards, with 4 axis machining which is also amazing for a desktop unit but it also includes a 3D scanner so you can go from real world to digital.

If the team from Milan can deliver on their promise based on their initial prototype, this might be one of the most disruptive stand alone machines to hit the market.

Their indiegogo campaign is looking to raise $50,000 with over $20,000 already raised and 47 days to go it is very likely we will get to see the FABtotum realized and shipped early 2014.
