The ORD bot is alive!

Hannes spent most of last weekend learning the software and tuning parameters until he was able to successfully knock out a test print.

The first of many objects to be 3D printed at SparkCC!


New equipment: Vacuform Machine

Committee member Ty has kindly provided SparkCC with a Vacuum Forming Machine!

Vacuform Machine

For those unfamiliar with the vacuum forming process, this machine allows a sheet of heated plastic to be stretched over a mold to create almost any shape imaginable.

SparkCC is Born

Today the SparkCC founders came together for our first ever Annual General and Committee Meetings. May 13th will henceforth be regarded as SparkCC's official birthday!

Signing the paperwork - SparkCC is born!

We outlined the final steps required before we can open our doors to new members and discussed a great many ideas for the future of SparkCC. To say we're excited would be something of an understatement...

Building the ORD bot: Part Two

After recent storms and the move into our new space set us back a couple of weeks, work on the ORD bot continued in earnest last night.


The New Space is Coming Together

The new space is starting to take shape...


We're almost ready to do some serious making!
