Today is the last day of our month-long giveaway of kits from Maker Shed and the Make: Ultimate Kit Guide 2012. As with the launch, we’re celebrating the end with ANOTHER MakerBot giveaway. Thanks for participating and we hope you and yours have a fabulous holiday.

To celebrate the release of our latest publication, the Make: Ultimate Kit Guide 2012 (and its companion website), we’re giving away at least one of the cool kits reviewed in the issue each day during the holiday season. Today, we’re giving away our fifth and final MakerBot Thing-O-Matic (a $1,300 value!), featured on the cover of the Ultimate Kit Guide. Here’s Make: Labs intern Eric Chu’s review of Thing-O-Matic from the issue:

If you want to get into 3D printing but don’t know where to start, the MakerBot Thing-O-Matic Kit is the way to go. It’s a complete kit, so you need no additional parts, and a large user community can back you up if problems pop up (not to mention Thingiverse, where you can find awesome open source designs). It took me about 20 hours to build the Thing-O-Matic and start printing, and I improved its accuracy with more tuning, calibrating, and tinkering with settings in the ReplicatorG software. If you have any trouble, read the discussion at the bottom of every build step. I’ve since 3D-printed many fun and handy things (everyone loves a 3D-printed gift!) and the MakerBot is now by far the most-used machine at Make: Labs.

To be eligible for today’s giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment below in this post. Writing a haiku will not help your chances (but it may give us a laugh.) The entry period for today’s prize will be until 11:59pm PST tonight. We’ll choose one person at random, you’ll be notified by email, and you’ll have 48 hours to respond. The Winners List is kept on the Giveaway landing page. That’s it! No purchase necessary or anything else to do. Please leave only one comment per post. You can enter as many giveaways as you like until you win. This giveaway is for US residents only. You also must be 18 years old to enter (Kids: Ask your parents to enter). See the Kit-A-Day Giveaway landing page for full sweepstakes details and Official Rules.

Important Note: If you enter this drawing, when it’s over, please check the place where you registered to comment (eg. Facebook, Yahoo, Twitter). Some people are winning these kits and then not responding when we send them a message using the available means of contacting them. We want to make sure you get your giveaway!

  581. This would be an awesome Christmas present to my son and I. I have been showing him (he’s 11) how cool science can be. To be able to make your own prototypes and items would be the icing on the cake.

  582. I miss the -o-matic suffix.

    II want to win,
    Thats not much of a sin.
    I have to much free time,
    so i might print a 3D sign.
    Or perhaps a hand,
    and use it as a stand.

    its been  a kinda fun yet frustrating month, entering and not winning.
    Are you doing any analysis of comments? Like how many for each kind of prize?
    how many people posted short “entry” comments vs long missives?
    might be a bit of added fun.
