Yesterday was a thrill and change. We had a very productive day (and night) and were able to accomplish three tests on many of the machines. Today we’re doing more testing and at 3pm PDT will be hosting a Google+ Hangout on Air to share the weekend’s grand adventure and to join up with offsite 3D printing enthusiasts. Then we’ll be hosting an open house at the MAKE offices, at 4pm PDT, where you can see the printers in person. Our address is 1005 Gravenstein Hwy S., Sebastopol, CA 95472. If you’re in the area, stop on by!
