Makerbot Replicator

When someone asks you to name the printers that are able to print themselves, you might have listed the Mendel and/or Darwin. But now, you can add the Makerbot Cupcake to that list!

This isn’t some mini, pint-sized version either. The entire chassis along with the X & Y stages are printable. However, the laser cut acrylic parts are not printable yet.

Along with other printable items/replacements such as Zaggo’s Printruder II and holders (aka dino replacements), insulator retainer, and Z-Stage, you might have an almost fully printable printer (sans rods, extruder heater, build platform, electronics). And if someone had some printable fasteners, that be even better!
