It Does It Itself!

Let's have designs that favor the DIY approach

Well, it's hard not to be intrigued by this. It's a 3D printer that makes a bunch of its own parts. And I gather that the rest of the stuff are things that can be found, relatively speaking, off the shelf. I don't know enough about 3D printing (yet!) to really evaluate the degree to which you can buy one and then crank out a bunch of clones of it (and then, presumably, take over the world!), but whether or not they've got it quite right, it made me start thinking about designs for things other than 3D printers that favor things that can be made either as plastic components on a printer or from standard sheet and strap metal.
