New Jigsaw desk member Scott is a 3D printing enthusiast. He brought in practically all the components of a Prusa printer, shown here laid out on his desk. Note in particular the extra-powerful NEMA 17 stepper motors, the Smoothie controller board, and the roll of <hushed tone>nylon 618</hushed tone>. (Oooooh.)
If none of that made any sense to you, come down and let Scott tell you all about it. He’ll be assembling those pieces into a working 3D printer, letting anyone who’s interested watch. He’ll also be leading workshops in which people will build their own printers and controller boards. Exciting stuff! Stay tuned for details.
