Thought I’d see what this 3D printing thing is all about. Turns out it couldn’t be easier! You choose a part from Thingiverse, such as a Gear Heart, download the model, load it into Makerware and just press print! I printed it on the Makerbot Replicator 2X at Techshop Pittsburgh, and it took about 9 hours. I’m impressed with how sturdy it is and how well the gears mesh.

Time to design my own models!
