Barrie’s first hackerspace ready for a 3D printer
We are a not-for-profit organization with a mandate to educate, hack, code, and have fun. We’d like to use this 3D printing to teach the community about the wonders of 3D printing, and the impact it will have on our future.
With this 3D printer we plan to do the following:
- Provide educational opportunities about 3D printing, including group classes and one-on-one instruction
- Work with the community to develop prototypes
- Make really awesome things, because making awesome things is awesome.
- provide a modest revenue tool to keep the organization financially healthy (all SimCoLab members are volunteers)
Any extra revenue will go towards additional equipment.
What printer are we getting? Well that depends on how much we raise. We’ve been hearing a lot of great things about the printr bots. If you have a opinion on this, feel free to post on our G+, Twitter or Facebook. We’d love to hear from you!
