Last week 3D Printers Australia made a visit to a very exciting and progressive HackerSpace in Melbourne with a particular interest in 3D Printing. Some of the projects were just awesome from Rob Gannon’s “Maxed Mendel” (above) to the communities own traditional in house Mendal among other open source and entry level 3D Printers.
CCHS (Connected Community Hacker Space) aka Melbourne HackerSpace is an enthusiastic group of hardware hobbyists and/or software programmers. They enjoy getting together to build new and challenging technology focused projects and gadgets for fun! The community meet several times a week in their awesome new space in Hawthorne (left), and welcomes visitors and newcomers who wish to make things and learn about technology, e.g 3D printers or robots. You don’t need to be an expert to participate and the space is gradually accumulating equipment and tools for common use.
During our time at the HackSpace there was even a workshop being held on parametric modelling and the community is planning more great informative events so check them out on Meetup or the Connected Community HackSpace website
