i'm not entirely sure... a bit of googling will reveal some sources.

me too. the full kit will probably run $500-$600 for everything you need. i'm waiting for my lasercut parts, and which i'm going to assemble into a machine. if those work out, then i'll be ordering a decent size order (25?) and then i'll be selling those. once we get that, we'll be very close to having a full kit.

my guess is that the lasercut cartesian kit will be $150 - $175
the electronics run about $100-$150 (i think)
the extruder will run about $50 - 100
the motors will run about $60
various other tools will run you another hundred or so.

realistically, darwin is designed to be printed, so until we have a proliferation of printers, its going to be somewhat tough to get kits for it. really, its more of a second generation design.

I am also interested in the kit, although I would also be interested in just the extruder portion as well.
