How advanced of a 3D printer can you make at home? What to look out for?

Hello everyone, this is a multi-part questions of sorts:


When building your own printer, what are some of the most important components that must to be high quality, and are there are short cuts for cost savings on everything else....i.e.; converting an old PC PSU into a dedicated DC power supply?


Is it possible to create a 3D printer as advanced as the cubify by purchasing parts from digi-key and other vendors?



Do any of you have any experience attempting to build you own 3D printer?
