Top Ten Things To Make With Your MakerBot Automated Build Platform
The epic launch of the MakerBot Automated Build Platform heralds a new dawn of possibilities for your MakerBot. The MakerBot truly becomes a mini-factory with the addition of the ABP, and can print out as many connectors as you need for the geodesic dome of your dreams. Charles Pax perused the Thingiverse for the things you can print-and-forget with the MakerBot Automated Build Platform. I turned it into a Top Ten list.
If you don’t yet have your MakerBot Automated Build Platform, get it now!
#10 Your Name
Everyone loves vanity plates. Print out your name to display on your mantle, or spell out words for your friends.
#9 Chess Set
Replace lost pieces or entire lost chess sets! Give them as gifts, or use them as paper weights.
Bring a 16th-century wooden puzzle to life by printing this reproduction by George Hart. There are dozens of individual pieces, so the ABP will make it a lot easier to print this thing. Bre likes to wear his as a necklace sometimes.
Print earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets, or even anklets with the ABP. This modular bracelet has slots for LED lights.
Be your own Matrushka nesting sphere factory.
Replace an injured foosball player or recruit an entire team using the ABP.
#4 A City
These buildings are from Tokyo, New York and San Francisco, designed by Thingiverse user gpvillamil. A great challenge would be a replica of New York City printed with the Makerbot Automated Build Platform. There are also models of stone houses on Thingiverse, so you can re-create a medieval village if you’d like.
Start printing and don’t stop until you’re swarmed with alien visitors.
The idea of having an actual barrel filled to the brim with printed monkeys brings joy to my heart. Please, someone, print me a barrel full of monkeys with your ABP. You know you want to!
#1 A MakerBot
It must be done! Just imagine, MakerBots making other MakerBots, non-stop, day and night.
