While on the subject, there has been a couple of times when people have asked if we have a dedicated PC for the maker bot. Now some of you have a laptop, just plug in and go, but not everybody does.
Last Wednesday we picked on a Dell (I think) that had once had the software installed, plus a couple other things, but found that it had been re-purposed at some point.
I know we are working on the classroom PC's, but the makerbot should have a dedicated PC, and a image of that system should be taken to bring it back up to working in short notice.
The key to all of this is maybe setting aside a dedicated table, bench, workstation for the Makerbot. Where is the space planning panel at as far as allocating space?
