The Printrbot 3D printer website has a live webcam feature pointed at their workshop. While we were peeping the action today, we noticed what looked like a super tall 3D printer, the likes of which we hadn’t seen. Upon investigation, we realized it’s the new Super Z height-extension kit for the Printrbot Plus. Giving your printer a lift is certainly an intriguing idea. According to the site, with this upgrade, you can now print 23 inches tall on the 8×8 print bed, which is over 1400 cubic inches. Statue of Liberty lamp, anyone?

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.

    Great until you print goes awry after the first 60 hours!
