Sheffield Maker Day

On the 9th of November a Maker Day took place at Sheffield Hallam University. I went along with the Sheffield Hackers and Makers user group.
I brought along my Pursa
Mendel but I also ran the Sheffield Hardware Hackers and Makers Mendel 90. Although my purse Mendel is not yet complete (but close to being though!) I still brought it along to show to people.

The Mendel 90 was being driven by a Raspberry Pi. The Pi had print run installed on it, this way I had full control over the printer just as I would if I was using a desk top computer. The printer was printing a small android fridge magnet test pice. The slicer settings still needed setting up on the Pi but I still ran a G code file on it.
