For now, we have revised our estimated ship date to mid-August. Read the full update.

From the moment I read about the existence of 3D printers, especially around the RepRap Project, I felt an immense and immediate attraction to 3D printing: machines that you could build yourself and customize, low cost and that automatically manufacture parts to build other machines… it was a dream come true.
