The desktop manufacturing revolution has been gaining traction at PS:One over the past few months.
We had the recent reprap build event, and now the hacked vinyl cutter, makerbot, PS1’s own RepRap Mendel, and the brand new CNC tool (it’s extremely cool, but I’m not allowed to announce it on this blog yet) have taken over half of the electronics work area.
To complete the CNC takeover, PS1 will hold a monthly Automation Station: One event where people are encouraged to bring their in-progress projects for building in a communal atmosphere and completed projects to show off.
All CNC tools are welcome: additive, subtractive, mills, lasers, printers, frosters, plotters, RepRaps, and even egg-bots. There will be an emphasis on open source hardware/software tools, but not exclusively so.
This first event will be on July 20th at 7pm at Pumping Station: One. Non-member CNC enthusiasts (and any projects they wish to share) are welcome to attend.
