A few nice 3D Printer images I found:
The spring 2013 hackNY student hackathon brought in hundreds of students to Columbia University’s Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science April 6-7 for 24 hours of creative collaborative hacking on New York City startups’ APIs.
NYC Startups, selected by a student organizing committee, presented their technologies at the beginning of the event, after which students formed groups to work through the night implementing their own ideas for fresh hacks built on top of these APIs.
On Sunday afternoon students presented their projects to an audience including a judging panel featuring members of the NYC startup community, which selected the final winning teams.
Since April 2010, hackNY hosts student hackathons one each semester, as well as the hackNY Fellows program, a structured internship which pairs quantitative and computational students with startups which can demonstrate a strong mentoring environment: a problem for a student to work on, a person to mentor them, and a place for them to work. Startups selected to host a student compensate student Fellows. Students enjoy free housing together and a pedagogical lecture series to introduce them to the ins and outs of joining and founding a startup in NYC.
Special thanks to our spring 2013 hackNY student hackathon judges! And congratulations to the winners of the spring 2013 hackNY student hackathon!

Quoting from the Artisan’s Asylum First Winter Open Studios! Facebook event page:
Yes, Artisan’s Asylum is holding its first Winter Open Studios on Saturday December 1st, from noon to 5PM. It’s FREE, open to the public, and families are welcome; so come join the fun, and tell your friends that this is a chance to see what everyone’s talking about.
More than twenty makers, crafters, jewelers, engineers and artists will participate. Tour group workshops and individual studios, observe demonstrations, purchase unique artworks and talk to who made them. Enjoy dragons, robots, collages, and interactive computer-generated music installations. Watch welders and glassworkers first-hand, and see jewelry being made on a 3D printer.
Artisan’s Asylum is now one of the largest collaborative maker/art/hacker spaces in the USA, with robust shop facilities for making almost anything you can dream up. Classes range over media including woodworking, metalworking, electronics, robotics, silk-screening and more. You can even sign up for one when you visit this event.
I also have other photos of Artisan’s Asylum, many related to SYBS: Somerville Youth Build and Sail, a project where we are building Optimist sailboats with our kids, and they will in turn learn to sail in them on the Mystic River.
