My Makerbot arrived, and so I spread out all of the pieces on a table and took 170 pictures of it...what else should one do with a new Makerbot?

For the uninitialized, the Makerbot is a 3D printer. A robot that makes things. You create a model in software, and then send GCode and the Makerbot makes it See makerbot.com Will open in a new tab or windowInterstingly and not accidentally, we are using the same GCode interpreter in some of the micro and macro gigapan rigs, and also if you look at a Makerbot through the
right lens it looks similar to something you might use for a macro or micro gigapan...the whole world of moving (machine tool|camera) under computer control to
(make|take pictures of) things has much overlap.

My friend asked me what I wanted to make with the Makerbot and my answer was something that looks like a makerbot, or probably a Reprap Mendel (a similar rig) with a camera in place of the extruder head...
