It seems that there is new diy 3d printing project emerging: Printrbot by Brook Drumm.

Main advantages:
  • 45 minute assembly time
  • less than 2 hours from starting the build to first print
  • price under $500, electronics and motors included
  • uses derivative of Wade's extruder
  • Sanguinololu electronics
  • most of the supporting structure printed
Great development, it's good to see new improvements, diversity and evolution.
