Handcrafted dollhouses are nothing new to the serious Maker, but MakerBot is taking steps to make this practice easier and more widely adopted than ever before. For the rest of January, MakerBot and a squadron of Makers will be introducing the MakerBot Playsets to the Thingiverse: 1:18 scale dollhouses as full of imagination and mischief as craft, modeling techniques, and cleverness.
MakerBot’s own design superstar Michael “Skimbal” Curry, creator of such Thingiverse megahits as the Turtle Shell Racers and Gothic Cathedral playset, starts the ball rolling by architecting a pair of MakerBot Playset buildings. Introducing two new Thingiverse superstars: Cushwa and PrettyLittleThings are doing a tremendous job furnishing these playsets with their imaginations.
We’re sure LEGO having a meeting to see if they should develop their own 3D printer, partner or buy MakerBot. It’s interesting,it’s very likely that someone is going to make a real playset for kids that celebrates engineering (for girls and boys) before LEGO will get to it 🙁 We really want to print out a Ladyada’s workshop, complete with Pick-a-place, laser cutter and Mosfet the cat.
