3D printers have arrived!

Our Innovation Lab 3D printers have arrived!  Both our MakerBot Replicator 2 and local company re:3D's printer, the Gigabot, both arrived recently, and we couldn't be more excited!  Each day we move ever closer to the Innovation Lab, where the public will be able to use and learn about creative technologies such as 3D printing.  We are eager for everyone to have access to this equipment and all it can do, but we ask for your patience as we try both to learn about these devices ourselves in order to help you learn as well and to finish construction on their permanent home in the Innovation Lab upstairs.  We hope for construction to begin very soon, so stay tuned!
