I've been MIA for a bit, but I'm back now. I was on a mini-vacation all over California, on my journey I got a chance to see first hand some 3D printers at Noisebridge, a hackerspace in San Francisco. Below are some pictures from my visit. Noisebridge is a non-profit that is geared toward providing a space to advance open source education. Besides having a 3D printing corner there is also a woodshop, a craft corner, a library, and a computing and robotics center. They are doing a great job advancing their cause. They offer classes in 3D printing (among other things) and if I were there I would definitely take some. Now that I am back in San Diego I may even see if there is anything like that around here. After a cursory google search nothing too promising, but I will not give up hope.
