I’ve been keeping my eye on these guys down in Santiago, Chile, who will be opening their new STGO MakerSpace with a MakerBot Replicator, a Thing-O-Matic, and a Cupcake CNC (#502!) — or, as they put it, “the whole evolution of the 3D printing revolution!” Today we find out that “ The eagle has landed! ” The Replicator we shipped has arrived in California and will shortly be on its way to its new home in Chile. We simply can’t wait to hear more details about what looks like a beautiful space
A few months back, we talked about the challenges faced by libraries in the era of ebooks, digital information and shrinking budgets. An emerging idea, now being pioneered at one New York state library, is to offer 3D printing facilities to enable constituents to develop and innovate new ideas and products.
