Makerbot Thing-o-Matic 3D Printer Review

ConMotto Re:Quality control? (117 comments)

Hi, I'm the author of TFA. I generally agree with you. It's definitely NOT something you'd use to replace $200K of aircraft-grade machinery, but more than adaquate for computer geeks (such as myself) for the occasional project. Considering that the price of such machines is only going to come down in the next 10 years, I don't see any reason why all manner of engineers couldn't--in the forseeable future--have one at their disposal. With a bit more polish and robustness, home fabrication could eventually become more like a household applicance than something only for geeks. Kindof like computers.

MakerBot Thing-o-Matic 3D Printer Assembly [PICS]

ConMotto ConMotto writes  |  more than 3 years ago

ConMotto (586959) writes "After an estimated 16 man-hour assembly effort, these are some of the first high-quality user photographs of the Thing-o-Matic 3D printer and completed component assemblies, released December, 2010 by MakerBot. The Thing-o-Matic is a commercial-supported open source 3D printer (similar to the RepRap), allowing hardware hackers to printer their own 3D objects out of Lego-like plastic."
