I ordered a MakerBot replicator 2 and I wanted to share my experience with it.  I would hope that other would be inspired by my purchase and get interested in 3d printing also.  My goal would be to reduce the price of these printers and materials to make them accessible to everyone.   Wouldn’t it be great to one day get to the point of the Star Trek replicator?  Ok, I know that’s a pipe dream but you have to start somewhere.

Here is the print I ordered:
