So lets add clay extruder to the multi tool list, thanks to Gregoire over at Fabriqueurs.com. Now that there concept has been proven I can’t wait to see what they use it for. Good job guys! Check it out here, http://www.fabriqueurs.com/imprimante-ceramique-extruder-de-largile/ This looks like it could be a lot of fun and like the cnc […]

If you have a spare minute have a look at Thingiverse, we have dropped way below the […]

I didn’t have the grades to make the club when I was in school so it feels real nice to be front page of the website! Doesn’t seem to work well in Firefox… https://www.asme.org/engineering-topics/articles/manufacturing-design/making-your-own-cnc-machine
I read Hackaday.com twice a day. I am so stoked, but very scared of the comments….. -update, almost 2 days later So cool, the comments, were uncharacteristically mellow. The Hackaday effect was awesome it caused giant spike in traffic. I have recently become an analytics geek, it is the only way I know people are […]
