Last night was another successful 3D Printing Sunday. Assembly of the YTec Plan B 3D powder printer commenced. It was like an adult version of Lego – searching through bags and boxes of delicious parts and hardware. And of course, as always, the night was fueled by plenty of popcorn and coffee.
Today at 7 pm is our general meeting. It’s not showing up on the calendar to the left, but it is going on and we hope to see you there!
Today is Arduino Day! We will be having a special Arduino based open house today from 1:00 – 3:00 PM. Come on down and check out Arduino projects, ask questions, or share your own project!

A Raspberry Jam is

- Your chance to share what you’ve been doing with your Pi
- A chance to find out what other enthusiasts are doing with their Pis
- A chance to have fun
- A chance to have some pie
Come to Makerspace Nanaimo on Saturday, March 14th at 1PM to join in the fun. There will be demos, discussions, explanations, a variety of Raspberry Pis set up to try out, and addon-on boards and more that let you do, well, pretty much anything you can imagine. It’s free, it’s going to be fun, and everyone is welcome.
Take a look at http://www.raspberrypi.org to learn about this amazing little machine!
We’re having a great time down at the makerspace tonight. It’s our Software Smalltalk Night, a weekly event every Tuesday for the more software-oriented members of us. Whether you want to write code, learn to code, or even just see what everyone else is doing, it’s a great time to come down and take part!
As always, the rest of the spaaaaaace is also open to anyone and everyone!
