Fun with 3D

Milwaukee Makerspace 3D Egg

Here’s a recent Egg-Bot experiment, putting the Milwaukee Makerspace logo on an egg… in 3D!!!

Well, it’s not really 3D exactly, as I just plotted with blue, then again with red, and the fact that registration isn’t perfect makes it look like 3D printing. But you know, we do have a box full of 3D glasses at the space, so maybe we should test it out.


I also made this egg for BarCampMadison, which happened this passed weekend. The Sector67 guys were there, and gave a session on 3D printers which included the RepRap, and the MakerBot. Speaking of the MakerBot, we’ll be doing a demo of it this week Thursday, September 1st, 2011 at the space. The demo will start around 7:30, and it’s open to the public, so come on down. You can also RSVP on Facebook if you like.



BarCampMadison (also known as MadCamp) is this Saturday, August 27th, 2011 in Madison, Wisconsin.

BarCamps have been great events to connect with other makers, and at last year’s BarCampMadison, Mitch Altman was even in attendance and gave a talk on the Hackerspace Movement.

This year there are some proposed sessions which may be of interest to makers, including How I built a 2-axis CNC laser out of (mostly) junk from my basement, Learn to Solder (from the Sector67 folks) and one I’ll be leading, An Introduction to the Egg-Bot.

If you can’t make it to this BarCamp, don’t worry… we’re about 5 weeks away from BarCampMilwaukee6. :)
