So today is the day. I can finally post some images because in a few hours we will be cutting the ribbon on our new makerbot array/innovation center. So many makerbots. There are so many people that helped make all of this happen. From administrators to electricians, it was a HUGE endeavor. 

Last night, we almost made all of them print at the same time (video below).  They are all running just fine, I just thought it would be epic to make them all run at once.  They also look super cool with the lights off.  

I think that this will allow an unprecedented level of access to 3d printing here at SUNY New Paltz.  In just a few short years our little lab has grown by leaps and bounds.  I am happy to help be a part of all of this and I hope this continues to grow.  I also hope all of this translates into a major and we eventually will expand into a larger facility.  

Thank you to Bre Petis, the CEO of makerbot and all of the other people involved.  

Now I have to go to work.  I am sure there will be a line of people outside of the lab today.
