MAKE’s “3D Printing Review Weekend” Begins in Ohio! #3DPrinting
Adafruit is lending me (Matt Griffin) to the 3D Printing Review project for MAKE this weekend. I’m joining a team of 17 testers from the 3D printing community, a list including folks we have shared about on the Adafruit blog before over the past two years: John Abella, Anderson Ta, Andreas Bastian, Matt Stultz, Tom Burtonwood, Kacie Hultgren, Michael Curry, Luis Rodriguez.
The Make: magazine crew has landed in Youngstown, Ohio and we are busy setting up 23 3D printers for review! Led by our Digital Fabrication Editor, Anna Kaziunas France, (and 17 testers from around the world) we will start testing Friday morning, and will continue throughout the weekend.
We’ve partnered up with AmericaMakes (AmericaMakes is the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute) to conduct our review at their facilities….

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
