For those of you in the Greater New York City Area, at the upcoming March MakeIT NYC Meetup special guest Keith Ozar will feature 3D Systems’ Cube, and NYCEDC will present “something new”:
Special Guest Keith Ozar of 3D Systems is going to introduce the Cube and CubeX 3D printers, talk about 3D Systems’ Cubify offerings, and will stay with us to demo what the Cube and CubeX can do. Better yet? 3D Systems is picking up the tab for pizza. Talk about a Maker’s friend – making both extruded plastic and oozing mozzarella happen at the same time. Thanks, Keith!
NYCEDC, our gracious space sponsor, will be doing something that we’re still working on. Something, maybe, Next Top Maker-ish? The judging and public voting deadlines close a couple of hours before our meeting… hmm. There could be some drama!
We’ll also be featuring member presentations! And presenters are still needed! If you have a favorite tool or technique that you’d like to talk about, or a project that you’d like to show off, and perhaps get some feedback, shoot Jonathan an email right away.
And don’t forget – we’re finishing the big drawing for the Gold Passport to the Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo! Everyone from the January meeting who filled in a slip, and March attendees who do so will have their name in the hat for the big ticket, and two others will be getting a Networking Pass.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
