Makerbot Thing-O-Matic

This space is intended to document progress on our Makerbot build. It should contain any information that other builders or future users might need to know, as well as general build status.


Initial build session. All parts packages accounted for.

Tools to bring to the space for build sessions:

  • Utility knife and/or scissors
  • Needle-nose pliers

We broke one of the Automated Build Platform's wooden ribs (with bushings for the drive rods). Some of the corners are really delicate. We repaired it with epoxy and marked the joint with black arrows.


  • Wiring attached to conveyor motor
  • ABP build begun
  • Y-stage build begun
