Wow, what an end to AY20 and what a summer! So much has happened that it is hard to summarize. We will get back on track soon and get everything set back, but we have been busy!


Here are a few things to look at while you get ready for the Fall:


- Our sit down visit with Formlabs: https://3d.formlabs.com/Office-Hours-CAPT-Brad-Baker-on-3D-Printing-at-the-US-Naval-Academy-On-Demand.html?utm_campaign=webinar-[Office-Hours-CAPT-Brad-Baker-on-3D-Printing-at-the-US-Naval-Academy]&utm_medium=email&utm_source=direct


- A podcast with Ultimaker also on our current status: https://www.talkingadditive.com/episodes/episode-06-additive-manufacturing-in-the-defense-industry-and-stem-education


- We are also working on our youtube channel and you can check our progress here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRfW-uBC2vVlfROffydiIwg


Congrats to USNA class of 2020 and hope to see everyone else soon!

Thanks to anyone who is coming here from our Podcast with Matt Griffin and Ultimaker.


If you not seen our podcast please check it out here or on iTunes.


It is and has been a crazy summer, but we have made huge improvements that we will roll out in the Fall.


More soon, Happy Printing!

Well this what happens when you let a blog go too long without updating....


So much has happened that there is not enough room to update everything. Several great improvements over the last few weeks and several great success stories (https://twitter.com/MakerSpaceUSNA/status/1238246255811313667) but sadly all are overcome by the recent events with CORVID-19.


Bottom line: MakerSpaceUSNA is shutdown. If you have 3D printing needs at USNA, you need to reach out to CAPT Baker, MR2(SW) Matthews, or Marc Bergeron to get help. You can also reach out using admin@makerspaceusna.com.


Wishing everyone the best...
