Failed Prints Put to Use – Monarchs

I had two monarch butterflies that both lost their antennae. I sent a quick tweet out to the community and offered them up as free to a good home. The Learn 2 Teach program at South End Technology Center quickly volunteered. They used them in a “Migration is Beautiful” display… and wow. That display is beautiful. I should get them to stage all my craft show booths!

Extra Prints to Use – Sophia

Last spring, I printed a number of names for a Girls Who Code Event. I inadvertently printed an extra SOPHIA. Rather than let the name sit around indefinitely in my office, I asked if anyone knew a SOPHIA on Twitter. Lo and Behold, Joe Larson, the 3D Printing Professor, knew one and was able to give my extra print a home. (He even printed a companion piece for her sister). It made me smile to see Joe’s report today that the SOPHIA has reached its home.
