Makerbot Roots

at 2:39 pm. Filed under Cool Gadgets


This is a good video of the roots of Makerbot. I have one of these on the wish list, I would love to be able to print 3D parts!

"The sign on the door reads MakerBot industries. Inside, boxes line the floors and there is a flurry of activity. A light humming sound fills the air. Machines buzz as they print physical objects that merely minutes before were 3D renderings on a computer screen."

    I would love to have a makerbot.
    It’s a pitty I can’t afford one as a student.
    Nor can I afford a pandora handheld.
    But hey, at least i’ve got an HD2.

    How is the HD2?

    This is the next thing i’m getting. I already do 3D modeling at work so this would be cool to print out some of the stuff we make.

    The HD2 is very good, whit HTC’s sense it’s just so nice to use it. Aldo there are some gliches sometimes, some say its windows mobile, some say its HTC’s sense, but i’m just waiting for android to be ported, and now the Acer A1 is out which has basically the same hardware, it is going to be done.

    wow I used lots of commas ^^^^.

    That blows me away! I can think of a million uses for that thing. If you didn’t watch the video above, you gotta see it!! It would be cool if it could lay metals and wires within the casting, thus creating custom chip boards for new products and experimental electronics. This could be big!

  6. Alex Says:

    where can you order one and how much does it cost?

  7. Mike D Says:



    $750 – build it yourself, however I don’t think you need to do any SMT soldering.

    It’s cool, however he makes out that its a new thing. Reprap http://www.reprap.org have been around for years, its has a huge international community behind it and all the instructions schematics and templates are online for free. It’s a little more expensive but can build much bigger models with much greater detail. The thing I like is once you’ve build one it can build the parts for another one.
