3D Printer Meetup recap

We've had two really great 3D printing meetups lately, one to talk about and demo 3D printers, and another to help people build and debug them. Here's some of the stuff we saw -


  Jorge brought in his Rostock Prisma to show it off and debug a few extruder issues. It's a really cool and fairly robust design. Plus, it's a lot of fun to watch! You can also check out the Thingyverse page that Jorge has put together for it.





 We also had Ant's 3D printer and the Thing-o-Matic going, so people could benchmark or run off a few parts. James Stephens also brought in his RepRap Mendel to debug some extruder issues.





Randy did some work on his CNC, building a cabinet with removable side-walls for it, while Van continued working on his 3D Printer, the same variant as Ant's and the one that I am building for the space. I made slow progress on that, too, and it "only needs to be wired up" now.

That's all for now! Watch our Meetup page for more great events like these!
