I'm confused !

We see an pro 3D printer making good Bioloid brackets from Gort.

Makerbot is a 3D printer.

Where can we see Bioloid brackets printed on a Makerbot ? What is the quality ? Are they ABS material ?

Maybe show us a Makerbot printed part for the Bioloid Premium chest ?

I will start making posts on 3-D printers. I have access to a Makerbot Cupcake and a UP! printer. When the Thing-O-Matic ships I will then have access to that printer.

I have printer most of my brackets in the UP! printer which is very similar to the print quality of the Thing-O-Matic.

I will print out some brackets using a MakerBot Cupcake to show everyone the difference.

i can tell you that the UP! printer is not a pro 3D printer it looks like it is a Chinese version of the Thing-O-Matic. I will not know this for sure until my friend gets the Thing-O-Matic but it looks like this is the case. The Thing-O-Matic is also 1,000 USD cheaper

We are having mechanical and electrical issues with the UP! printer. Looks like the UP! printer does have some flaws! It will be interesting to compare it to the Thing-O-Matic when it comes out. The company has sent replacement parts so it should be working again in a few days? I have a new bracket that I am going to try out in the leg next. It will be interesting to see if it can standup to the stress? Will post pictures and a video when I can find some free time to do it.
