Introducing Local Motors' "Prototype Development Division"

About a week earlier than expected, the 3D printer (at left), depowdering machine (in the corner) and the scanner (not shown) arrived earlier this week!

No candy or Easter Egg hunts needed for the engineering team this year...we already had our hunt rifling through the boxes as soon as they arrived to set up our new equipment. We are now officially the proud owners of a Z510 Printer and ZScanner 800.


Now we just have to complete the training on how to use them so we can start cranking out the great designs we have planned (more on that next week).

Thanks go out to Vehicle Engineer Dave Riha for setting up the machines, putting power to them and having everything set up so we can hit the ground running when Gary Wentworth of ZCorp arrives for the training. Thanks also need to go out to Jason Bassi for coordinating the efforts and to Gary for putting us in an earlier time spot than initially anticipated since the printer arrived early.
