Adventures in Makerbot: Building

Well, MakerBot Industries Thing-O-Matic 3D Printer

It arrived last Friday. And I've been slowly putting it together piece by piece. And there are a lot of pieces. So many, I either lost a few different sized screws or they weren't put in the package. Either way, there are plenty of ways to get it fixed up.

Plastic Extruder

I'm looking forward to making some custom light and camera mounts. And I'm sure I'll think of other things to build.

    Glad to see it’s going well! So exciting! Let me know what size screws are M.I.A. I have some machine screws leftover from mcmaster carr from when i built fab@home. I may have some in the right size. We should have a fab-off once it’s done. :)
