Hi all

Fresh out of the Makerbot Wiki (the edit time is from an hour ago) these are the first instructions for assembling the Thing-o-Matic:

X Stage Assembly:
http://wiki.makerbot.com/thingomatic-x-stage-assembly

Y Stage Assembly:
http://wiki.makerbot.com/thingomatic-y-stage-assembly

Z Stage Assembly:
http://wiki.makerbot.com/thingomatic-z-stage-assembly

Extruder Assembly:
http://wiki.makerbot.com/plastruder-mk5

Body Assembly:
http://wiki.makerbot.com/thingomatic-body-assembly

These are the very first bits and pieces of information available.

The full build has an index here
http://wiki.makerbot.com/thingomatic-as ... structions
and you'll see it is still a work in progress with some pages still as placeholders.

We kind of ran into this by accident as we haven't seen this advertised anywhere, so feels great to be one of the first to tap into this :)

Finally some (highly antecipated) insight into the design of this new machine!


Here are a few pics from the assembly pages:
