Making stuff

I've just ordered one of these nice machines:
MakerBot Replicator 2

Yessiree, a MakerBot Replicator 2 3D printer. Unfortunately, there is 4-6 weeks lead time so I can't begin playing with it right away. Fortunately, that gives me time to brush up on my 3D modelling skills (this 3D printed enclosure came out pretty good though so I'm not starting from scratch).

And there's lots to learn: different types of filament, extruder settings, slicing profiles and whatnot.

Sure, I can wait. I'm not impatient for the Replicator 2 to arrive at all...
