3D Printing at the Hackerspace! Makerbots and Mendels!

by on Jan.31, 2011, under Arduino Projects, Electronics, Projects

This past weekend Sonny and Nick had their Makerbot 3D Printers up at the space. Sonny showed off his by printing a part used for the Mendel 3d printer in glow in the dark ABS plastic. Claudio and Daniel are in the process of building their own Mendel 3d printers. Once everything is built and working we should have 4-5 3d printers among the group! If you’re interested in learning more about these printers or how to get started in building your own, come out to a meeting and strike up a conversation with one of our many members active in these projects!

    Great projects guys and gals! Excellent to see you are cooking up some cutting edge stuff. I am extremely jealous.

    We have bought a Makerbot for here at work. The problem is, no one knows how to use it! Do you know of any “classes” that can be taken to learn how to get it going? We have it set up, but no software or anything. It has been put to me to get it going and I have gotten lost just trying to get started! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

    Feel free to come to one of our meetings at Republic Coffee (1st & 3rd Friday @7pm) or visit us during our Open House meetings (every other friday) at our space. We have several members with 3d printers that would be happy to give you some pointers and probably even help get you set up! Feel free to join us in IRC and we can point you in the right direction.
