  1. You may sell Makerbots all you want. I have a Replicator 2 and thought about buying 3 more for work. Now I’ll think otherwise.

  2. I was pretty heart broken to see that Makerbot has gone this direction. I’ve been saving for a 3D printer for a bit. The silver lining is that I’m now in a position to buy a true DIY 3D printer. I’m going to have to assemble it, but that’s kind of what it is all about.

    I really appreciate that Adafruit is looking at this seriously. I think of you folks as hackers first, and a business second. I think you do a great job of putting that image forward. All that being said, for you folks, this is a business. This is how you feed your families. You have to watch that bottom line.

    For myself, I’m steering well away from MakerBot products. They’re more expensive, I don’t see that they’re going to deliver on that additional expense, and they’re moving in a direction that is antithetical to the DIY/Open Source movement. I’m not against patents (I’m working on a few myself), but I am for original IP rights. If this is your invention, you should be able to determine how it is used.
