Loveland Creatorspace Show and Tell at LulzBot Headquarters

Last week we had the privilege of hosting the Loveland Creatorspace's Show and Tell event, where members show off their wares to other members and the public. We had a great time hosting our local creatorspace, including special guests from SparkFun Electronics and the Denver Mini Maker Faire, and showing off our cluster of 135 LulzBot 3D printers.

Some pictures of the event are available on the left-side of this blog post. The Loveland Creatorspace uploaded a full album of photos available on Facebook here.

One of the Loveland Creatorspace's founding members, Josh Datko, wrote about the event on his blog saying:

"I was there talking about the CryptoCape and I had brought the first prototype with me. The board has certainly come a long way and there is plenty more to do. I really wanted a crypto board that was hacker-friendly and could be extended in various projects. I keep thinking about new ways to use the cape and I think it’s going to be a lot of fun for people."

Josh's CryptoCape is a promising new technology. We enjoyed seeing the prototype in person, and strongly suggest you follow the progress of Josh's work as well.

We enjoyed the show and tell event and are excited to have a LulzBot 3D printer up and running at the Loveland Creatorspace. In case you aren't familiar with them, here is some background information from their website:

"The Loveland CreatorSpace is a non-profit, members funded and operated, cooperative “makerspace” for engineers, artists, musicians and tinkerers of all sorts to come together and … CREATE!

Like a traditional “hackerspace”, the primary objective of LCS is to provide a community-driven work shop that offers its members access to tools, machinery and classes to help promote creative engineering in Loveland and Northern Colorado. A comprehensive collection of tools combined with an assortment of community-owned light-manufacturing equipment will provide engineers, artists and musicians with the resources they would need to complete almost any project."
