Hi patrik,

Sounds like the meetings will be good and very interesting. Hopefully I can make it to some of them. 
Sign me up for the group.

I am sure we will be posting pictures, schematics and instructions as we go along, and maybe post an Instructable or two once we've satisfied ourselves that we understand it well enough to show others how to build their own bioprinter.

For those of us who will never be able to attend meetings (I am in New Mexico) would it be possible to post photos and instructions or maybe even a video.

Hi all!

We had a great first meeting for the BioPrinter project this Wednesday. I believe everybody who showed up on Wednesday, or indicated their interest during the earlier survey should have gotten an invitation to join the new discussion group for this project:

This is a closed list for now, so you need to accept the invite before you can read, receive, or post anything on this list. Do make sure to sign up, so we can move the conversation off the main BioCurious mailing list.

We have a page on the biocuriousmembers wiki for the project - click on the request access button if you don't have access to this one yet:

We're also planning to have regular weekly meetings for this project. Please indicate your preference for dates and times on this Doodle poll:

(Note that this is for an ongoing *weekly* meeting, not just next week. Doodle made me pick specific dates - just ignore those.)

Hi all!

Based on the feedback from the survey we held last month, BioCurious will be kicking off its first community project this week:

BioPrinter: Hacking an inkjet printer for 3D bioprinting
Commercial inkjet printers can be used to print chemicals, proteins, and even cells onto a surface. Print multiple layers on top of each other, and you get a 3D printer for biological tissues and organs! This project has something for everyone: hardware hacking, electronics, cell biology, synthetic biology - you name it!

We'll be holding our first project meeting this Wednesday, 7:30pm at BioCurious. Sorry for the late notice, but we wanted to get this project rolling as soon as possible. This first meeting will mainly be organizational and some more brainstorming. If you can't make it, feel free to give us some feedback here on the mailing list. Here's some of the questions we'll need to discuss:

- When and how often to hold regular project meetings
- Who will help lead the project (so far, we have James Cortese, Venkata Ravuri, Simon Frid, and myself)
- Different areas of expertise needed (e.g., know anyone who can write Linux printer drivers?)
- What should be our end goal for this project, plus some interesting applications along the way

Our second community project will be a Bioluminescent Nightlamp - expect to see an announcement about that one soon as well. We're still looking for people with experience in synthetic biology to help lead that one though.

Participation in community projects will generally be open to everyone, but do keep in mind that you do need to be a member to actually work in the lab.

Hope to see you at BioCurious the Wednesday!
