Steampunk printing

Some of you might already know that I’m absolutely in love with my Makerbot 3D printer. It has opened up a whole new world of ways to design and build stuff.

He said that he'd love to do and create more events that people who are interested in math/science/robotics/nerdy geeky things would enjoy at the Steampunk City.
