Tues/Thurs crew: begin building RepRap 3D printer

The parts we identified for this build are ordered but may not arrive until Wednesday or Thursday. We should still get together to think about our pipeline of projects.  Like a low cost Lyman filament extruder to make our own filament for 3d printing. Or to share any personal projects you may want to work on in the space.

 

 

 

***

We have a makerbot2, but in the spirit of making we'd like to build a second 3d printer that will be a platform for modifications. It would be cool to add a laser marking attachment later, but first things first, let's build the printer! I have many of the parts to get started.

    I'll have to change my RSVP to "No" due to monthly membership cost. Not in my budget at this time.
