Hive76 held an awesome bot building event at NextFab Studio, August 26th-28th. Hive76 members entertained and educated, as they assisted attendees in building a RepRap Prusa Mendela (a consumer grade 3d printer) from first bolt, to motor, to the software needed to print 3D objects. Not even Hurricane Irene could stop the attendees, who pushed through the bad weather with little to no breaks (their choice) from finishing their projects. The build was a fun way to extend the NFS community to new people that are interested in this new wave of technology. Check out more images on our Flickr page!
Hive76 plans to hold another build in the spring. If you have any interest please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
