Volunteer Helps Prepare Botfarm for Maker Faire
A few months ago, Armando Mendez had never heard of a MakerBot. As soon as he did, he bought one, and has been an avid MakerBot Operator ever since. He even started a lab automation consultation business, with help from his MakerBot. As a field support engineer for a pharmaceuticals research company, he is an expert in robotic machines that do things like handle liquids. Now that he has a MakerBot he can build broken or missing robot parts for his clients.
Armando has generously donated his time (he’s in-between jobs) to help prepare the Botfarm for the upcoming NYC Maker Faire. He has learned a ton since getting his own MakerBot, and is happy to be volunteering at the Botcave. “I believe in what’s going on here,” he told me.
This afternoon Armando was troubleshooting the temperature control system on one of the MakerBots. He’ll be volunteering a few days this week and at Maker Faire on Saturday. Thanks, Armando!
