    So… if I were getting into 3d printing… which printer would be better. Makerbot’s Thing-O-Matic or Fab@home ver2? Cash burning hole in pocket… must have comment input!!!!

    I wanna buy the Fab@Home Model 2 and some links direct me to the NextFab Store, but their phone number is incorrect. Anyone know that is there any alternative to get the printer? Thx!
