Baltimore Node’s Open Hack Night invites non-members to tinker with 3D printers at Load of Fun hackerspace

One step inside the Baltimore Node “hackerspace” in Station North, and you’re confronted with a first-generation Makerbot 3D printer huddled next to a massive game cabinet.

To the cabinet’s right, Han Solo in carbonite, a mold of a mold of the original Star Wars prop. The far right wall is covered with more tools than you’ll find in a Sears catalog. And on a table nearby: a foot-and-a-half slingshot with a box of Angry Birds plush toys sitting behind it.

Much respect to Norm Abram, but the New Yankee Workshop got nothing on this.

Since July 2009, the Node has occupied space in the Load of Fun Building on North Avenue. Members pay $50 per month for a key and 24-7 access. And oh how much fun can be had.

About a dozen people were tinkering on different projects when Technically Baltimore arrived at the Node’s Open Hack Night on Thursday around 9 p.m. A team of three tried to get a 3D replicator to work. Several others were seated at tables coding on their laptops. Each Thursday, the Node hackerspace holds what co-founder John Cutonilli calls an “open workshop”—a chance for Node members and non-members to stop by and work on whatever they’d like, with the tools of the Node at their disposal.

Here are some photos from Thursday’s Hack Night.
