MakerBot Ordered!

MakerBot CupCake CNC

MakerBot CupCake CNC

Ever since hearing about the RepRap project more than a year and a half ago I’ve been dying to make/build/buy one.  This last May I got to see an actual MakerBot CupCake CNC print a lego right in front of my eyes at the 2009 MakerFaire in San Mateo.  One of the best parts was getting to meet Zach Hoeken Smith, Bre Pettis, and Adam Mayer.

Well, this morning I finally pulled the trigger.

I just ordered a CupCake CNC Deluxe kit from MakerBot Industries.

Here’s the thing: I have no experience working with electronics beyond putting batteries in the T.V. remote.  It’s going to be an adventure!

I can’t wait!!!
