Unwrapped a new Makerbot Replicator 2X 3D printer this week. After printing one of the test models, I dived in with a 20 year old Scifi Dropship 3D model I built back in the day using Caligari Truespace ver 1.0. The Dropship model has a fair amount of challenging geometry for the Makerbot, including overhanging features that extend above portions of model itself. The Makerware software that comes with the printer added breakaway support structures to prevent drooping during the build. Playing around with the Makerbot Rep 2X, I definitely get the feeling that things will never be the same going forward.

I spoke briefly to George Langford, half of the Brooklyn based electronic band Javelin following an incredible live set here in San Diego. Their latest album, Canyon Candy was being distributed electronically via USB based sheriff's badge, in keeping with the western theme. Short video below showing off the MP3 player album featuring "Trembler", my favorite track from Canyon Candy.
