[masked]PM to 11PM - “Be a part of 3D printing history and come to our Makerspace to see the first print using the FORM1 3D printer!” All are welcome!
After waiting almost a year, we have finally received the ultra high resolution 3D printer called the FORM1. This amazing 3D printer uses stereolithography, a photopolymer liquid, and a Blu-Ray laser to print small features which would be almost impossible to print on a standard MakerBot or similar tabletop 3D printer. Before the FORM1, a Makerspace or company would have to buy a $60,000 3D printer to be able to print with clear plastic resin and with ultra high resolution and accuracy.
At 7PM we will start running the printer and will have free pizza, drinks, and food. We also will be printing a mech pendent found on www.thingiverse.com's web site as well as weighing the print and support structure after it is printed to determine the cost of printing with the resin. If you are considering buying a FORM1, now is a perfect time to see it work in action from beginning to end.

If you have any projects you are working on, feel free to bring it to Reverse Space! We have locked storage space, hundred of tools and electronics, and the largest sections of free to use 3D printers for any Makerspace (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hackerspace) on the east coast of the US. At this time membership is free.
Other projects we are working on below. Help is always needed.
Micro controller (Arduino) – Looking for a group leader to start projects and setup lab.
Raspberry Pi – Installation of OS system and working test system for members.
Lyman Filament Extruder – Every Makerspace should have one!
Heated Build Bed - for Makerbot Replicator 2. We have the parts.
Human Head 3D Scanning - Microsoft Kinect Sensor installed with the software for 3D scanning.
NextEngine 3D Laser Scanner – Ready to use.
3D - “Rostock Delta Arm 3D printer” Team is almost done.
3D - “PrintRbot LC” - This 3D printer needs to be calibrated and test prints done.
3D - “RepRap” - This also needs to be calibrated and test prints done.
CNC - “ShapeOko CNC” Team is almost done.
3D - “B9Creator” Getting a working print and settings with our DLP light 3D printer.
Drone - “Flight of the 3D printed quad copter drone” The drone needs to fly.
Help Needed - Organization and building of the Makerspace. Help is always appreciated but not required.
Community Help - Other members who may need help on their projects.
Website and listed equipment – Webmaster needed. Free membership for this job.
