I think it would open a lot of possibilities if we added castable wax resin to our FormLabs 3B supplies. For example, as a jeweler I do a lot of initial design work with 3D modeling and lost-wax casting. Make Haven doesn't have metal casting equipment, but there are lots of outside casting facilities that will accept shipped models. This sort of resin would enable Make Haven members to model directly for that purpose. It would also be well-paired with more basic wax-carving tools to add an entire new medium to MakeHaven's capabilities.

Roasting your own coffee gives you more control, is far cheaper, ensures freshness, and gives you access to a much wider range of beans! Though you can roast at home with a Whirlypop or other simple setup, having a programmable machine with heating elements, fans, and smoke control makes things much easier, more approachable for new users, and produces less of a mess.
A machine like this is probably overkill for any individual, but would be perfect for a shared kitchen space!
