Among the hundreds of entries, the projects submitted by these eight hackers truly stood out. From holding classes to further educate the public on 3D design and printing, to making advances in practical and medical devices - and always keeping their work free and open – we are confident that our printers will be put to excellent use by these outstanding winners.
The response to the event by attendees was overwhelmingly positive, and it served to demonstrate the strong interest in 3D printing technology in Atlanta.
Freeside Hackerspace is a 5,500 square foot facility that feels like it just goes on and on...If you have a project in mind, they’ve got the space and tools to make it happen.
...it’s a place where people passionate about science, technology, and digital projects can meet, collaborate and hang out. It can be an open community lab, a machine shop, a work shop, a studio or a combination of these where people can share resources and knowledge to build neat stuff.
