Find all your DIY electronics in the MakerShed. 3D Printing, Kits, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Books & more!

On this week’s Toolsday Google+ hangout on air, we’ll be talking about 3D printer maintenance and optimization. We’ll discuss regular printer maintenance such as tightening bolts, lubing rods, changing the tape on your build platform and few tips and tricks. This being a Toolsday hangout, we’ll talk about the tools we use to work on our printers here at MAKE, too.

No so coincidentally, our Ultimate Guide to 3D printing hits newsstands tomorrow as well. Pick up a copy and join the discussion tomorrow at 2pm PST and 5pm EST right here.
