Guadalajara’s TechMind Immortalizes Blowhard Hurricane Patricia in 3D Print

As Hurricane Patricia formed while we headed into last weekend, seemingly out of nowhere for those of us not glued to the weather radar, there was barely the sufficient amount of time for residents–and media–to begin a massive panic along the Pacific coast of Mexico. Popular beach areas like Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo were right […]
