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.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
