That made my day.
Lost in translation FTW.
But on this side of the pond, we call meccano erector. But I thought the same thing CA.
That said..... I Am VERY interested in this. I am already limited by the XYZ I have, and need more.
@makeblock: How customizable is it? Can I swap out a heated bed for ABS? That's what I'm looking for right now and would be interested in purchasing this soon, especially at this price point if other reviews are good.
EDIT 3: Ahhhh nevermind, kinda. I read the machine size as the build envelope. Release a kit with that build envelope and I'm game.

over here an erection is something entirely different ;-)
(oh you said erector, could that be someone who produces erections ?)
I think I'll keep calling it meccano lol

Only reason I know what meccano is, is from a James May show on BBC.
