This is awesome. The ultimate goal to projects like MakerBot is to creating a 3D print that can print more of itself. Well that goal is now one stop closer thanks to a man going by the handle Webca. He managed to create an entire frame for a MakerBot using a MakerBot. He also posted the instructions online so others can replicate his work.

*sigh* I have read too many science fiction stories to view self-replicating inorganics as anything but an eventual problem ;).
Yeah it’s probably going to involved machine overlords. Why do you think I’m posting positive comments on this type of tech? It’s to get on their good side before they ever rise.
