Greater Hartford (mini) Maker Faire Saturday October 7th in Farmington, CT

NESIT will be showcasing at the Greater Hartford Mini Maker Faire in Farmington, CT this coming Saturday (that’s October 7th, 2017). Come down and see what we’ve been working on.

We’ll be bringing back Kevin’s popular leatherworking and tooling workshop from last year. We’ll also have an entire table devoted to showcasing 3D printers along with an iTopie live build! Watch in real-time as we fail (or succeed?) at assembling a 3D printer from a host of possibly correct spare parts.

Tickets are free and can be acquired through the fair’s Event Brite page.

Wednesday Open House for February 1st, 2017

Come on down to check out the new tools and collaborate or just pass some time with like minded individuals. And check back here on the website in a few days for video of NESIT’s drawer-slide CNC. It was a scratch build by Rich with (mostly) found parts from the Makerspace!

Maker Monday Open House for Dec 18, 2016

Maker Monday is rolling around at NESIT Makerspace again this week. Why not stop by and use one of the 3D printers to spread some holiday cheer?

With tool sorting underway at NESIT it’s a good time to look over the available 3D printed options for making your life a little more organized. ┬áHere’s a few 3D printed parts that are great for when “We’ve just got to get organized“.

Unless you’re in Russia. In which case I’m sure there’s an incredibly melancholy equivalent saying. Continue reading Organizing Tools around the Shop.. by 3D Printing!
