When most people ask me about Makerspaces they, of course, ask about 3D printers. The two seem to be so closely related in conversation that it seems some people think one term is synonymous with the other. While 3D printers are definitely a prized possession of many Makerspaces they are by no
I know I said I would discuss the future of 3D printing this week. However, after a largely positive feedback for last week, some people did mention that I may have overlooked perhaps the biggest question of all, why get involved? This lead to the quest
