Member Since:

I am Josh Starnes. I entered personal robotics in 2011 under the inspiration of EZ-Robot. I have always been interested in anything that moves especially robots. The Ez builder and EZB v3 educational system has given me tools to create robots that I never though I would previously. I started a Electronics Engineering degree and I look forward to continue teaching others while learning myself about the robotics industry.

Large Plexiglass Box Over Makerbot 3D Printers In The Office
Hey guys in the office , my local supplier had large sheets of plexiglass but I would rather buy it pre sliced with polished edges and I would probably be cheaper off than buying 4 x 8 sheets and cutting them myself. Do you buy it as a box kit? Aprox cost? Maybe a website I can get them from? Thanks guys
