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.

Makerception – The movie about a Maker making makers for making makers
Would love to have one. Santa please, please!

What an awesome kit!!
Oh man, I’d love to have it!
Yay! bring on the MakerBot!
My roommate would love this. His grad school research involves some aspects of this and he is fascinated. !! Hope its me. Makes a christmas present
oh the things i would make.
Come on Makerbot! Daddy needs a new pair of 3d printed shoes!
If I win this we can skip the other 11 days of Christmas :-)
This will MAKE my day to be able to MAKE all of the 3-D printable things I see in MAKE!
Yay.. another thing to enter and never win
Please! there are only so many more days left and Ive yet to win anything.
Oh man… number 4. Only one left after this. This is so awesome having the opportunity to have chance to win any of this great stuff!
C’mon Santa, lemme win this MakerBot!
I’m gonna have to throw my name in this hat again. After much discussion, its been decided that a Thing-O-Matic is something our eclectic learning center really needs.
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 built more gears for him, pa rum pum pum pum
The PLA did flow, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,
the things I could do with that printer…
I hope I win!
Hope… it’s that time of year!
If I win it, I will mint it.
4th time’s the charm!

Oh the things I could make… I want it!

I want a robot that can make other robots
My car broke, my hard drive died, I just cut my hand… I could use something good today! :/
Hope I’m lucky.
Please save me the trouble of buying one later.
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.
Wait–#4….? I must have missed entering for one somewhere in the middle! Oh noes!!
I must have this
MakerBot for the win!
I would love one of these!
Hope I make it.
The web dev mgr in my office has one of these things, it’s pretty awesome.
I has access to a Cupcake model through a local hackerspace and I really want something with a bigger platform to make bigger cookies! (Among other things.) I would lurve a Thing-O-Matic sooooo much. I would love it, and hug it, and call it “George”!
