Hope to see a lot of #scientificmaker activity!
Applications to give a talk are due April 1, and to exhibit a maker project, April 22nd Time and space are pretty limited (it's a pilot!- we just have one afternoon for talks and one big room for exhibits) but I am hoping to get some great DIY lab and open-source citizen science.
We now have a simpler form to apply for a spot to exhibit or talk, and links for more info:

I'm now very slightly less behind on getting my designs posted!
Of course, using a longer bearing or multiple bearings set further apart will help, but you also lose travel this way, so the machine needs to be taller for a given build height.
Anyone know of any data that's been collected on how various types of linear bearings handle angular loads from various directions (particularly interested in data on MGN-series linear rails).
And by the way, we will be teaching a four week beginner 3d printing class online starting June 5. Still time to sign up at www.nonscriptum.com/classes.
I hope they start printing the parts out of something other than PLA. It's pretty cold around here, but those PLA motor mounts definitely won't survive in a warmer climate.
