Getting a makerbot at work, therefore lots of questions anticipated!

Any clue which SE might be best?

Depends on what the nature of the question is. Can you give more details about the kinds of questions that you want to ask. – casperOne Dec 5 '12 at 2:19
You could try Robotics. – ronalchn Dec 5 '12 at 7:36
@casperOne, my ignorance is pretty comprehensive, so there's no telling what I'll be clueless about at this time! – Mark Harrison Dec 5 '12 at 9:17
@MarkHarrison When you actually get the makerbot, and then have a better idea of the type of question you want to ask, that would be a better time to find out where to ask it. By your own words, you don't know what you'll ask, and there's a number of different ways that you can approach makerbot, so we don't have much to help narrow it down for you at this time. – casperOne Dec 5 '12 at 12:42
I think a more correct response would seem to be "there's not one at this time." – Mark Harrison Dec 5 '12 at 18:18

Unless Digital Fabrication makes it through the proposal stage (and does better than its predecessor), there likely isn't a good place for questions about Makerbot.

Maybe Electrical Engineering, but I'm not sure. It'd probably depend on the question.

Thanks Anna. I'm active on Electrical Engineering; I don't think it's a good fit there. I have similar doubts about Digital Fabrication; I think the number of people who do CNC milling, etc, are going to be much smaller than the number of of people who get a 3D printer. I imagine that as 3D printers pick up in popularity things will sort themselves out SE-wise. Thanks! – Mark Harrison Dec 5 '12 at 18:12

Updating Anna's answer:

Digital Fabrication had little success.

Still, it seems there is a constant need for such a place, because its successor, 3D Printing and Rapid Prototyping is currently in proposal stage.

I stumbled on this question searching for a similar place, and encourage all those who do to take a little time to back up this Area 51 proposal.
