    So you’re going to sell Replicators through Amazon, most likely to people who have read about it but haven’t been active in the Maker scene. _NOW_ will you stop writing everything as if you’re talking to someone who has 10+ years in the 3D printing world? Every time I try to learn how to do something all I get is undefined terminology, vague references that only experts know, and incomplete instructions because you always assume your readers know everything you’re talking about.

    Half the battle to make Replicators accessible to the masses is to make the instructions and tutorials _understandable_ to the masses. Quit making this a private club where only the members know the secret phrases and where the various options are hidden.

    In other words, hire an outside firm, or at least a nontechnical person, to write all your communications with the outside world.

    @palenoue, allow me to direct your attention to a little known research tool known as Google. I, for one, have found that the available literature on 3D printing, both free and for profit, boils down to about the same basic info that you can find in a couple of hours of internet searching. If you haven’t absorbed the basic lingo, (which honestly is less complicated than current high-school slang) why are you attempting anything technical in the first place? This is more complicated than my inkjet, but less complicated than my HMO. Seriously, the documentation is appropriately clear. You need to take a minute to look up the words you don’t know. For a new user in the 3D printing world, MakerBot has done well to make the tech accessible.
