Make no mistake, they will be the next big thing and change the world as we know it . I will also briefly talk about a site where you can download models to make after you build your 3D printer. !
The MakerBot is the first widely known DIY 3D printer, and so it has had plenty of time to mature. They even raised $10 million in Venture Capital last week, so you can be damn sure he’s on the right track.
To give you a better overview of the machine than I could ever hope to explain in text, here is Master Mechanic Bre Pettis himself talking about the MakerBot.
Note. The latest version is the Thing-O-Matic, but the model shown in the video is the «Cupcake CNC 3D Printer».
Thing-O-Matic (see below) can now also continuously print objects, «ejecting» them when completed. So what it really means is that you can have your own private factory. First of all, just look at this — it’s incredibly cute, wouldn’t you like to have it in your workshop?
