MakerBot Monday 7-4-16 3D Printing - J.K. Rowling has been busy lately. With a new book called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and a play with a grown-up Harry Potter entitled Harry Potter and the Cursed Child opening in London, the British writer seems to be everywhere. With that in mind, this week’s Makerbot Monday features the crest for Hogwart’s Gryffendor.   Stop in to our Peru Location to see this 3D printer in action.

With only a month to go, have you upgraded to Windows 10 yet? Call us to help you decide! https://www.yahoo.com/tech/update-windows-10-july-29-135110788.html
If you’re still putting off your upgrade to Windows 10, the end is nigh. That’s because the free update period for the operating system is quickly approaching: If you don’t make the move before it’s up, you’ll shell out $120 to $200 you otherwise didn’t have to spend.
