Best comment in this thread right now.I doubt the 3D-printer is big enough for Zach's purposes.
Aren't those 3d printers expensive? Just because he left doesn't mean he won't try to get his stuff back.
There is a famous makerspace in the Bay, Noisebridge.But he'll probably just get a membership to one of the local makerspaces and make some new friends while he's at it.
Let's wait and see if any pictures of Penny at Noisebridge start popping up in the social media.
