We had a successful first 3D printing challenge - this photo captures some of the results.  Members of our  3D printing community tried a wide variety of techniques, colors, and finishing options and everyone learned something valuable from the process.  Join us for the next week's 3D print challenge! Be sure you are subscribed to the 3D printing mail list to find the print of the week.

Nova Labs is featured in today's (7/22) Washington Post business section.
