I noticed that also, apparently they cancelled it.
Guess it's time to look for replacement.

It's soon to be replaced by the all-metal "play" model for $399. For the extra $50 you get an all-metal machine with a larger build volume and you don't have to assemble it yourself. Brook said they'll also have a kit version.

Well apparently they are getting out of the DIY business.
That's too bad, but it is their prerogative.
For me, I'm glad that the 1405 Makers kit was around.
Thanks to this forum and the 1405 kit I now know enough
to go my own way. Thanks PB.

I just received the email that announced the Play.
A little disappointed but I guess it was the best move for them from a business standpoint.

There's lots of kits available now, and with PB's past comments about how hard it is to support kits (unless you came here, of course) it's not surprising. Now that the 3D printer market is taking off (except for Makerbot...) it looks like they're finally going for higher profit machines to pay for that Mexican Villa. Guess TV stardom wasn't enough :)

Didn't Brook say, only partly as a joke, that they should charge more for kits because of the support issues?

I'm glad I got into 3d printing when I did then just a few months ago. It was through a special sale at Micro Center of the Makers Edition DIY kit. Building the printer myself really helped me to understand every single thing going on. Looking back, I'm glad I did not go with a pre-built printer (it was either the Makers Edition DIY kit or a prebuilt DaVinci which was priced very competitively). It's too bad they are moving away from DIY. In my own opinion its the best way to understand how these things work.

With the sorta Prusa i3ish style of the Plus and Play I'm expecting them to replace the metal simple with a mid size similar styled printer. Now they're an all heavy metal band they'd likely retire the laser cutter, and use the space for more metal working equipment. Say a metal cutting laser.

I was in the shop yesterday and all of the laser cutters have been replaced with new equipment that will allow us to make the Printrboards. We may have kept one of the laser cutters I think.

I would've loved to have one of those laser cutters. I could use another one

Ok, we do still have them. However, Brook has yet to decide what to do with them. If you are really interested, I recommend contacting him via Twitter and/or email... brook@
