This page documents all there is to know about our MakerBot. The version we have is a Cup Cake CNC.


You should get a walk-through on this machine prior to using it. Our MakerBot is a standard build, but there are some options you should know about, you need to have the right software configuration, and it has some quirks. Contact Roger for more information.


A detailed recap of the operating instructions is beyond the scope of this page. Please get an introduction to the i3 Detroit machine, and read up on the online documentation. How to Print on the MakerBot website
