The newsletter is published each Thursday (or, occasionally, Friday). If you have makerspace news or announcements that you’d like to submit for the weekly newsletter, please email Pat DeSimio (p.desimio@crucescreatives.org) by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

News 

Powerful New Software Available for 3D Printing, Laser Cutting, and CNC

The makerspace 3D printers, CNC machines, and laser cutter just got even more useful! Cruces Creatives now has an educational license for LuBan, a software program that post-processes 3D files. In an especially useful feature, it can break apart large designs and allow them to be printed in multiple pieces. LuBan is available on the 3D printing computer in the electronics lab, and training will be available shortly!
