LA Makerspace needs 3D Printers, a Laser Cutter, and Open Project Time for Members to Innovate. Can you help?
Here's the +LA Makerspace Kickstarter. We've been running it for 24 hours and only have $1524 to go until we reach our goal! Pretty awesome considering I think I have an ulcer after worrying about launching it for the past several weeks. Now we are setting our sights on reaching our stretch goals so we do super super awesome stuff in the space. Thanks to all of you that have backed us!
