…we learned that [3Dponics] have teamed with 3DPrinterOS to bring their hydroponics system to the masses. We first covered 3DPrinterOS back in June when they announced plans to launch a cloud 3D printer operating system. As part of this collaboration, 3DPrinterOS will include the 3Dponics’ open source hydroponics system as part of their upcoming launch. This will include all of the digital files and instructions required to build the system.
“We’re huge fans of the 3Dponics project and we wanted to give users access to files right away that can be printed to make a difference in their homes and across the world,” said John Dogru, CEO of 3DPrinterOS.
3DPrinterOS continues to add supported 3D printers to their system, and users will now be able to queue up and print the entire 3Dponics system on multiple 3D printers at once, in a single process. This along with other 3D printable projects could make 3DPrinterOS quite the valuable resource. The fact that this cloud OS allows for users to not only share designs, but share their 3D printers with friends and colleagues as well, means that they can assist others in creating their own 3Dponics systems….
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
