Glad you could make it out!
Btw, that GPL'd parametric human model thing I mentioned is at http://www.makehuman.org/

> I had a great time at last night's meeting. I really enjoyed seeing Andrew and the Cupcake in action (the other cupcakes were delicious). Truly a nice piece of equipment, and small enough for any enthusiast (my wife still told me "No" when I suggested getting one - dang!). The laser cutter was impressive too, and the soldering station is really well equipped. I just might have to move in.
> Andrew - thanks for the suggestion to build a fully articulated, human model based upon my 3D Studio renderings. I would not try to accomplish such a task on my own, perhaps others at Mod Lab would be interested in a collaberative project. It certainly would be an envelope-pushing undertaking; requiring robotics, electronics, artistic painting and advanced model making skills.
