Plotter Disassembling

Yesterday the Makerbot group took apart the plotter by removing all the uneccessary chips that we won't be using. We plan to use the x and y axes from the plotter and build the z axis on our own. These axes will eventually come together to make our own 3D Printer. The benefit of using the plotter will be to have a much larger build surface compared to what the Makerbot currently offers. We have a good handle on this project and look forward to making progress and creating a finished product of a new 3D Printer.
