Want to take your 3D printing projects to the next level?  How does a functional robotic arm sound to make things more exciting?  This is our project for a guided build where groups of friends and family can come make use of our printers to create something incredible!

In this first session, we will walk you through the project, and then it will be up to your group to print out the components.  Then, in December, we will meet up again to assemble the robots and get them moving!
