It's a software solution many 3D printing artists have been dreaming of – the conversion of scanned drawings into three dimensional objects. Realizing that not everyone has the patience or skills to be a 3D modeler, a skilled programmer from Seattle by the name of Dylan Rush has offered up a solution.

It is an application called Marble and it can turn hand-drawn sketches into computer generated geometry for 3D printing.

You're invited to a 3D scanning and printing presentation and HDMM update. 
High Desert Maker Mill is excited to call together our community of advisers, donors, executive board, supporters and other community members for an update on HDMM's latest news regarding a Maker Space!

Also, join us for a fantastic demonstration of 3D scanning systems that range from hobby to professional grade. Dan Ferguson, from Global Inspection Solutions, will demonstrate a variety of scanners, and his personal experiences.

See the workflow in action, scanning to model creation to manipulation to 3D printing.

This is the kind of technology we need to develop AND build in the US.

Want a quick graphic way to program the +Arduino? Give this a shot.
Thanks Alan
 
Arduino users! Would you like to configure and control your Arduino micro-controller without having to write a single line of Arduino sketch code and at the same time have access to a graphical user interface?

Scratch programmers! Would you like to control and communicate with an Arduino board using Scratch? Imagine, using Scratch to control physical devices such as LEDs, motors, and relays while monitoring devices, such as temperature sensors, potentiometers, and light sensors. What would you create?

s2a_fm is a Scratch hardware extension written in Python allowing Scratch and an Arduino micro-controller to communicate seamlessly.

You can download it here: https://github.com/MrYsLab/s2a_fm
