We’ve been getting more and more requests for 3D printer demos lately. Inspired by not wanting to disappoint kids who didn’t even have their first iPad back in the days when it was magic to be able to 3D print anything – like when our Makerbot Cupcake was hot stuff – Jim has been trying to get the old printer working again. This W88 logo is one of the latest results. Not bad for an old 1-color printer! (Thanks to Bill for the color change tips.)
Its output is no match for current “appliance” 3D printers, but it’s still fine to show the basics in a nice noisy demo. Details of Jim’s adventures with the printer are captured here.
