Our MakerBot Thing-o-Matic got a new friend today, as we set up the Replicator that finally arrived yesterday. I don’t think it took too kindly to this, as it immediately got cranky, but they both had a busy day cranking out extruded plastic.
What was most exciting was the collective reaction of all the students that saw them. “Excitement” is an understatement, and I can’t wait to see what they start creating. if you’ve never seen one of these in person, you have to. It will absolutely change your perception of what’s possible.
