* '''3D Printing''' ([[3D Printing]]): HacDC has a LulzBot Mini and a significantly modified LulzBot Taz regularly up and running; they are run off a 3D print server and instructions for logging in and printing remotely are posted by the printers. We also have a handful of other 3D printers in various states of repair and upgrade including a RockStock Max or two and a RepRap and others. These are demonstrated, used, repaired and upgraded during 3D Thursdays.

Current (2016) efforts are focused on designing and assembling the upgrades to the smaller classroom cutter (40W) which will be used for training before moving onto the high-power machine.
