Raising money for a CNC Mill

We're raising money to buy an awesome CNC Mini Mill, for creating custom machined metal parts. We have enough people interested that it sounds like we can get the money pledged, so click on the CNC below to donate now! You will only be charged if we collect enough donations to buy the machine, so there's no risk. In addition, due to our recently obtained 501(c)3 status, donations will likely be tax deductable (talk to your accountant etc), so really it will hardly cost you anything!

3D Printing Filament Update

Thanks to everyone who contributed, we were able to buy five 1kg spools of plastic. The 3d printer is getting some good use these days, here are some of the objects being cranked out. This is the stuff left behind so I can only assume there is even more awesome things being made that people are taking home.

We have our 501c3!

Ace Monster Toys received a letter from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) dated April 10 that informs us that our request to become a 501c3 federal nonprofit corporation has finally been approved. Due to backlog at the IRS, we have been waiting for the last year for word on our application.

As a result of this, donations to AMT are now deductible from your federal taxes (though dues are not). This paves the way for a variety of grant applications as well as more local donations!

We need more plastic for 3d printing!

We only have a single roll of 1.75mm plastic, and I've been using it all up! So I started a campaign to collect some money to buy some more rolls of plastic. The more money we can collect, the more interesting colors and materials we can get.

In other news, we had our 2nd official 3d printing night, and it went well, though not quite as busy. We had people working on separately:

* Assembling a foldarap

* Assembling a Makergear Prusa

* Assembling a Mendel Prusa

* Attempting to repair an old Makerbot Cupcake

* 3D printing on the working Makergear Mosaic
