Just made it home last night from my trip to Colorado and I’ve been slowly working my way through all the boxes that came in the mail while I was gone. The server is formating in the background so I finally had a chance to dig through the package containing my new Makerbot thing-o-matic. I’m not sure if I’ll have time to start the build process until I get back from Montana next week, but it’s here waiting for me when I get home. I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures as this project comes together.

If you’re interested in getting into 3d printing but don’t want to spend the money on a Makerbot, you could always get a for about half the price. The design isn’t as refined as the Makerbot but the 3d models will come out about the same.
