I'm a mechanical engineer based out of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. I was considering building a [email protected] Model 2, but the cost is just crazy, compared to a RepRap. Plus, I can see that RepRap's z-axis design is much better than the [email protected] design.
I use SolidWorks 2009, and am happy to help others make CAD assemblies (in whichever format they prefer) and STL files.
I also run Thingfarm North America, supplying hardware kits to the USA, Canada, and beyond.
