Thanks to all who joined our live 3D printing webcast where we used my MakerBot CupCake CNC machine to print out Sean Ragan’s animal pentominoes puzzle pieces! Over 250 of you stopped by over the course of the hour, and it was so fun chatting with you! We’d like to do more live events in the future, including a maker show-and-tell type of meeting, but online. If you missed the webcast, you can watch it in the Ustream archive. If you have suggestions for live events you’d like to see Make: Online produce, please post ’em up in the comments!

    As someone who checks this blog almost daily, subscribes to your tweets, youtube channels, and even your email subscriptions, I had not heard of this live ustream event. Not sure how I missed it.

    For the next one, can you promote it more and let us know when it will be taking place?

    PS> Not trying to sound accusatory, I just missed it somehow.
    The idea of live events is a good one!

      Sure thing, we first posted it on the blog on Wednesday, tweeted it then, then a reminder post an hour and a half before the event with a tweet as well, then a tweet right at the start. Will try to give more advance notice next time!
