Adafruit has teamed up with Adafruit's friends over at MakerBot to offer the MakerBot Adafruit Edition. The talented members of the Adafruit community are exploring 3D printed solutions for their inventions, electronics enclosures, mounting hardware, and artwork, so they have bundled a MakerBot Replicator 2™ desktop 3D printer with three of Adafruit's more popular DIY electronics projects. After you've built your kits use your new MakerBot to print out the kit enclosures!

This MakerBot includes a special limited edition MakerBot + Adafruit build plate and a 3d printing for electronics pack! Please note, MakerBot Adafruit edition includes a Raspberry Pi, the "free Pi" with purchase over $350 does not apply to this product.

The Replicator 2™ is MakerBot’s fourth generation machine, and represents a tremendous leap forward in ease of use, resolution, and build volume over previous models. With a resolution capability of 100 microns and a massive 410 cubic inch build volume, MakerBot proposes that its Replicator™ 2 Desktop 3D Printer is the “easiest, fastest, and most affordable tool for making professional quality models. Adafruit set a new standard with Adafruit's work, so that you can set a new standard with yours.” Includes a 1 lb spool of Natural PLA filament.

Raspberry Pi Model B 512MB RAM - The Raspberry Pi® is a single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of stimulating the teaching of basic computer science in schools. The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. The design is based around a Broadcom BCM2835 SoC, which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 128 or 256 Megabytes of RAM. The design does not include a built-in hard disk or solid-state drive, instead relying on an SD card for booting and long-term storage. This board is intended to run Linux kernel based operating systems. Print your own - Pi Command Center!.
