I just finished my kit build and thought I should formally join the community. I'm Rockey, a Web SysAdmin, family man and electronics hobbyist from SE Michigan. 3D printing has been on my bucket list since I first read about RepRap in Make Magazine. (I'll have to find that issue, wonder if it was vol 1)
I almost bought a Printrbot but concluded that this might be my only 3D printer and I'd rather have the experience of building it. Marty's kit and video instructions put the daunting idea of a build within my comfort zone.
I'm a total noob and will have lots of questions so I'll see you around!
