Made: Makerbot Cupcake CNC

Thanks to a great deal of help from summer intern Summer, we have our brand spankin' new Makerbot Cupcake CNC 3D printer assembled and tested. I've been looking forward to this for more than a year and am thrilled to see it all coming together at last!

The full photo album of the build is here.

First Print: Cid's shot glass. . .well, at least a third of it printed.
We decided to use it anyway!

A toast to celebrate!
