MakerBot 3D Printing

It turns out that one of the joys of my job is to be able to play and explore a lot of technologies and gadgets in a dedicated space, where I can research and create digital experiments.

Our most recent toy, is a brand new MakerBot Replication 2X 3D printer! An awesome piece of tech that allows you to recreate 3D models. There’s a lot to talk about 3D printing, but this being the first chance I have to actually have one, has been a really cool experience.

I already had to disassemble and clean the nozzles to change plastic colours from the extruders, a fun thing to do. I’ll hopefully be blogging a lot more and share what we can achieve with it in the short future. For now, enjoy some of the shots.
