We went to a really great 3D printing meet up on Sunday (it’s been a busy week with Mind-2-Matter and getting ready for finals next week, so I wasn’t timely in blogging about it).
It was hosted by Type A Machines and 3DHubs, who just recently unlocked San Francisco.
3DHubs is another print on demand service that required a certain number of printers to sign up in an area prior to “unlocking” a city. We had been watching for months for San Francisco to be unlocked but have been steadily using MakeXYZ to grow our business.
We spent a bit of time networking and one of the featured speakers was Made in Space!
What’s Made in Space you ask?
Basically they are a group that is working on the first 3D printer in space!
How rad is that idea?
I can’t say we’re working on anything as ground (or space) breaking as 3D printing in space, but Mind-2-Matter getting to be a REALLY exciting project.
I’m working on the photography tomorrow morning before we head out to Half Moon Bay.
I went through the entire casting process on Saturday from spruing to pouring the investment mold to pouring the pewter! Justin took some video so I will get that posted up tomorrow as well as the photos of Gnorman in various states of being.
Here are a few of Gnorman from my cell phone (the real pictures will happen tomorrow!).
