Oh, and 3D printers

Starting at The Edge as a Catalyst has definitely been one of the better first weeks you could imagine. An awesome bunch of people, a relaxed work environment. Oh, and 3D printers.

Usually when you sit down at your desk at a new job you will typically find a computer, a few pens, a draw full of assorted paper clips and maybe a stapler… if you’re lucky. Sure my desk has these things, but it also has a Cupcake CNC from MakerBot Industries and a freaking RepRap! They need of some TLC and a little programming persuasion, but I am hoping to get these puppies up printing over the next few weeks.

So if you happen to know how to get a RepRap Gen6 Electronics driver singing in RelicatorG, or if you have ever wanted to learn more about this fangmangdangled 3D printing stuff drop my a line on the twitters @clinton_freeman

    Hi Paul, the Rep is rapping like it is 1986. Looking at starting to print out parts for it’s first baby printers. The cupcake is moving around nicely, but the new extruder is not behaving itself yet.

    Does this mean that The Edge got funding for it’s 3D printing lab?

      The Kickstarter campaign was unsuccessful, so the scale of the project has changed, but we do have some printers that we will begin to make available soon!
