Old Business

Budget & Purchase Votes

  • $700 - (Paul Vincent) Gigabot Heated build platform & insulation
    • Heated platform kit is $613.61 w/ shipping [1]
    • Remaining funds will be used to enclose the build area.
    • Allows us to actually save money by using our backstock of 3mm ABS rather than buying the more expensive 3mm PLA.
  • $360 - (Paul Vincent) for a supply of PLA. This will be a mix of 1.75 PLA and 3 mm PLA. The 3 mm PLA is for the Gigabot while we work on transitioning it to work w/ ABS. This purchase will be for:
    • Rolls of PLA to be available for general use at the Hive for small one off projects. This material will be marked somehow such that it is clear that this is the Hive's "General Supply". Please be respectful of this resource and do not use it for large prints that use a lot of plastic.
      • 2x Rolls of 3 mm PLA
      • 2x rolls of 1.75 mm PLA
    • The remaining funds will be used to buy a mix of 3 mm and 1.75 mm PLA that will be available to be purchased at cost from the Hive for use on larger print projects.
  • $200 - (Jon Neal) Ducting for the woodworking vacuum system.
