I have seen a FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) machine before and I was totally intrigued. After hearing about www.makerbot.com from Twit.tv from floss weekly. They explained their open sourced project and selling kits. But what really got my eye is that the RepRap project, that is the grandfather project of makerbot made version 2 called mendel. their first version put me off as I just never liked the problems it had, jamming, costly, hard to build. Now that a new version came out earlier this month, I looked at it and thought, yes this can be something I can build and use.
