Albert Filice, one of the top-notch interns in the TechHive Labs, spent hours assembling and calibrating several 3D printers. He quickly became our in-house 3D expert and evangelist.
We then trolled the user-generated content on Makerbot's Thingiverse for hidden treasures to print out. (Makerbot sells printers and supplies and hosts user-generated, 3D model files for free on Thingiverse.)
Some of the designs came out great, some not so much, but the wacky process, managed by Albert (left), was always fascinating.
