Another fantastic open night with pizza, laser cut artwork and 3D printing prosthetics!
It was a quieter night than usual, as you can tell by the smaller array of pizzas. Though no less productive!
A long time interest of a few of our makers and good timing have coincided tonight, I had a medical professional contact us regarding using 3d printed prosthetics. This base model were from an open source project that popped up in our radar quite a while ago. It was great to be contacted by a local person working in the field and be able to team up and have a go at this project. For our first test we printed some prosthetic finger joints(blue). Secondly we printed the cover in a flexible filament for a more natural feel and grip(pink). We think they turned out rather well for a first test print!
Evie was using the laser for cutting boxes again. The hinge on this was was a little thin, so it doesn't close as nicely as it should. Also, don't forget to double check your files, the skull symbol was meant for engraving only but somehow got tangled in the cut options too! (Oops)
