* Disclosures: The MakerBot was recently purchased by StrataSys and got backing and tons of beneficial marketing from Make Magazine. The documentation is fairly well done, and this company also runs the Thingiverse website. What does that mean for the beginner?
 
 
What does that mean for the beginner?
 
* People will walk up to the MakerBot and say that it is not the best 3D Printer out there. that is partially true, especially since our newest 3D printer is from 2010.
 
* Because this printer has lots of marketing and financial backing it is probably nice that they have support staff and documentation.
 
* People who are advanced will make nerd out on points that are not really that important in the long term for a beginner and are a needless distraction from you reaching your goals. I cannot tell you how many times people have distracted me by interrupting my conversations with talk of people 3D printing food in space or how they have this amazing patent, or how they have an EEG brainwave machine that hooks up to 3D printers and 3D prints your thoughts. Don't be a jerk, but recognize that these people like to talk a lot about technology and that is really different from people who actually do stuff. They will be great tech writers and cheerleaders but they are not doing kinds of people.
