Customs and volcanos
So… after the long awaited arrival of my Makerbot kit there unfortunately hasn’t been enough time for me to play with it. Actually I wasn’t even able to unbox it and have a look at what was waiting inside the package for me. Foreign and german customs as well as the ash cloud of the icelandic volcano eruption crossed my original plans of building the Makerbot in april and playing with it in may. Just to point out: I ordered the kit back in february, it was shipped in april and arrived at my place in may.
Yesterday I surprisingly had some spare time and I decided to unbox the kit. And I documented it… For you… Yeah, and of course for me as a first test post for this blog. Below you will find some pictures of what might be in your package ;-)
If you are situated in germany and you are planning to get one of these fine kits too you may consider getting it through Watterott electronics. When I ordered my kit back in february Watterott wasn’t offering the kits through their web shop. Well, ordering through them would have saved me at least 2 € and a lot of nerves…
From here on I am actually as clueless as you might be. You can identify most of the wooden parts. Especially when you have seen one assembled. So I will leave them uncommented.
And now? I have an appointment with Holmer Schleyerbach to meet and actually build the Makerbot. I think it is more fun to do it together and hopefully this way we will be able to document the assembling of the makerbot in more detail
so that it might be useful for others too. I had a look at the Makerbot Wiki and it is just brilliant. The assembling instructions are perfectly documented. But I will document the assembling anyway…
I will post this assembling also. So stay curious…
