PandoraLive is One Year Old!


It’s been one year that this Blog dedicated to the Pandora has opened its doors, and its evolution kind of mimics my experience with the Pandora. Getting my first model in 2012, then progressively becoming more involved with the Community, going back to coding stuff in my spare time… to realizing the lack of a good online resource dedicated to the Pandora (apart from the boards). “Hey, if no-one is doing it, then I will do it myself”.

Many good entries in this week, with a special mention of Printrun which makes Pandora able to drive a 3D printer on its own!
