So a few months ago my wife’s family decided that we should all go on a beach vacation together. After searching for a destination, a beach house on Topsail Island in North Carolina was selected. We packed up and headed down and of course, a 3D printer was on the way with us. Within the first two days, I was happy to have it with me. Read More



This past weekend 3DP PVD participated in Rhode Islands local Mini Maker Faire. While we were there we were also testing out some new technology. All of our printers were running Network attached and being controlled by one central laptop. At this months meeting I will show you how we got this working and how for a very small investment you two can be up and running in no time.

As usual, this meeting will be held at AS220 Labs in down town Providence. 131 Washington St, entrance around back on Lucie Way.


So you missed 3DP PVD’s CastMax build but really want to get into bot building with a little bit of help? Your are in luck! John Abella, friend to 3DP PVD and 3D printing fans everywhere is running his own class on October 5th and 6th. John will be guiding participants through the process of building the new Prusa i3 RepRap printer. John is hosting this class in Wilmington Delaware at the Double Tree hotel. So although this class is not in Rhode Island it could be a great 3D printing getaway!
