Making stuff to make stuff. :-P

I totally should build a MakerBot Cupcake. Although instead of dropping $$$ on fancy laser-cut panels, I may just print out the plans, glue them to some wood, and go at them with a drill press and a knockoff-brand dremel. Could probably cut the price other ways, too.

Biggest issue I see is that its build area is kind of small. Maybe once I get it all figured out, I could make a bigger version. Or maybe use it to build a RepRap, those look like they should handle printing bigger parts. (Hmm. Would a scaled-up MakerBot Cupcake just be a MakerBot Cake then, or what?)

Anyone know anything about these things?
