Kit-A-Day Giveaway: MakerBot Thing-O-Matic (#4 of 5)

3D Printing & Imaging

We’re giving away amazing kits from our new Make: Ultimate Kit Guide EVERY DAY — thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, including MakerBots!

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 fourth 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!

    See, I know what’s going on here.

    I keep entering and not winning because MAKE wants me to believe I’m not getting it, just like when I was a kid and I really wanted something for Christmas and my parents were all “we can’t afford that one thing that you really, really want more than anything else” but still magically I would wind up with it under the tree, sometimes, though I never got that pony or working light saber.

    When I win this and I am going to win it, I’ll finally be able to print my own Christmas presents, and maybe Hanukkah presents too–and Kwanzaa, why not–and no one will ever break my heart again and if they do I’ll just print a new one.

    I’m a conventional machinist / instrument maker by trade. when i switched careers 5 years ago, i kept my conventional machines. i’m “_that_ guy”– you know, the one that makes all his own shit. i haven’t bought a new tool or piece of equipment in 1o years. everything i pick up is second or third hand and i refurbish it myself. most times, by making my own parts. i want to pass this down to my kids, but having a CNC machine at home is impractical, until now! this thing addresses all my concerns about CNC: ease of use, portability, practicality; and of course accuracy and repeatability! nicely made machine that i know the boys will love to learn on.
