    Oh, and in the meantime - I'd strongly encourage you to give TinkerCad a look over.

    Bad news I'm afraid folks. As luck would have it, our 3d printer threw a canary recently and is now in need of a little TLC. Nothing we can't handle, but it does mean we looking at holding the next Jitterbug event more in the August time frame. Although it might be gutted and rebuilt before then. Such is live, the good news is we're taking this opportunity to use better tech, which means you'll get to be the first to use the new and improved bot!

    Hey. Sunday mornings work for me

    July 10, 2012

  • Richard F.

    Cool guys, so we have 6 people ready to do the workshop. Let's agree on a date and make it happen. Sunday mornings seem to work well, however I'll wait to hear back from you all with suggestions before I finalise a date.

    We had the first workshop on Sunday. It was a blast, a bit too successful for our own good! I've got more bugs on order and will schedule a Jitterbug workshop as soon as they arrive.
