Updated part info and replica (printable) original case for self-supplying the parts for the MakerBot Gen4 Interface Kit.
Since my ToM pre-dates the G4IK, I never thought I would want one. But my workflow for printing from the SD card has become increasingly tiresome (especially with Sailfish), so now I want one! Sadly, there's no kit available, so it's time to DIY!
First, order a PCB from batchpcb (pcb#79131, thanks to TheMakerGuy's thing:18416). (It's fully possible to protoboard or hand wire, but batchpcb provides a great service.)
[2013-07-03] Since thing:18416 is gone, bobc has graciously put up thing:110911 as a replacement.
Here are the part numbers and part cost (as of 2013-02-24) from Mouser:
Hardware parts (from your parts bin, local hardware store, part supplier, amazon, etc):
While you're waiting for shipping & delivery, print the case.
