HeatSync Labs in Mesa Won a 3D Carving Machine
Things are really shaping up in Mesa.
The volunteer-run "hackerspace" HeatSync Labs, which operates as a communal gathering place for engineers, artists, and creators and the Valley, just received the modern day builder's dream gift: a 3D carving machine.
Not to be confused with a 3D printer, which can materialize objects from plastic, a 3D carving device, also known as a computer numerical control milling device, can cut already existing materials such as steel, wood, and aluminum, into a wide array of products; from furniture to machines.

The machine was awarded to HeatSync Labs through a contest presented by Chicago-based company Inventables. The "designer hardware store" which aims to "ignite the digital manufacturing revolution by simplifying the path from idea to finished product," unveiled a campaign to supply free 3D carving machines community-focused organizations around the country.
After submitting a formal application documenting the many ways in which its nonprofit maker space supplies the tools, resources, and education to cultivate the growing community of creators in the Valley, HeatSync Labs was informed that it would be receiving the coveted carving machine.
Parts for the machine are currently in transit to HeatSync Labs. Once all the shipments arrive, HeatSync will host a free machine assembly-viewing event followed by future public workshops on how to operate it. For updates on upcoming events such these at HeatSync Labs visit www.heatsynclabs.org.
