You have asked and we have listened. We're giving away a Shopbot!

A Shopbot is basically a CNC router capable of cutting and carving intricate shapes out of a wide variety of materials such as full-sized sheets of plywood and acrylic. Simply send it your design files, and the machine cuts them into reality.

Don't have design files to send? No problem! The winner will also be getting a copy of AutoCAD 2012 to help them get started.  (Can't wait to start making your designs now?  Try out our free suite of tools at 123D.)

To enter the Shopbot challenge post an Instructable that best shows off your creativity, ingenuity, and maker knowhow. We want to know that the person we give this Shopbot to has the skills and talent to make great use of it. It is important to put your best foot forwards and fully document your project with great photos, and clearly written instructions. And don't forget to tell us what you will do with it if you win!

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entries from US, Canada [excluding Quebec], UK, and Australia. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, February 27, 2012.
