About MakerBot #131

The MakerBot 3D printer is the a super-cheap, super-hackable 3D printer.  An extruder, mounted on a Z-stage that can move up-and-down, melts plastics like ABS (a la Legos), HDPE (milk jugs), and PLA (biodegradable plastic made from corn!), and deposits it on the build platform, which can move in 2 directions.  In this way, it can build up 3D objects layer by layer!
