OC 3D Printers - Workshop & Open House

  • August 3, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • Raise the Barre

For this meetup let's get more in-depth and focus on some of practical applications of 3D printing. We've arranged a great new space with two big rooms, allowing us to have both speaker sessions and an open house. For the sessions we can have our 3D printing veterans cover a range of topics. The open house will be a chance to share your own printer and check out other printers.

Schedule of Events:

Room A
2-5pm: Open House - 3D Printer Show and Tell.  Bring your own 3D printer and check out other 3D printers.

Room B
2:30pm: Intro to 3D Printing (Lars Brubaker - MatterHackers)
3:00pm: Designing with SketchUp (Erick Wolf - Airwolf3D)
3:30pm: High-end 3D Printing (Dave Gurrola - GROWit)
4:00pm: Advanced Tips & Tricks - Q&A (Panel)

Let us know if you have a specific topic you would like to hear about.

As always, everyone is welcome - whether you are a pro, hobbyist or merely curious about this new and rapidly evolving technology. Free snacks and beverages (yum!).

All age groups are welcomed. Minors must be accompanied by an adult. If you have a printer, feel free to bring it along to share. If you are bringing a 3d printer please bring an extension cord. See you there!

This event will be free to attend.

    Thanks to everyone who came out in Saturday. It's good to have a space to interact with other 3D printing enthusiasts and learn from one another. See you at the next meet up!

    it was not really a workshop - we did not do any work. I though its gonna be more hands on/do stuff

      Workshop -
      1.
      a room, group of rooms, or building in which work, especially mechanical work, is carried on.
      2.
      a seminar, discussion group, or the like, that emphasizes exchange of ideas and the demonstration and application of techniques, skills, etc.: a theater workshop; opera workshop.

      Thanks for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear you weren't fulfilled from the meetup, but I think we met the requirements for a workshop. I was manning a printer throughout the duration of the event and sharing techniques on how to get the best print. We will try to integrate a more hands on experience for the next meetup.

    We just had a new baby, so I couldn't make it.

    Sounds like it was the best ever! :)

    Matterhackers: When is the next meetup?

      Chris - Not sure when the next meetup will be, bi-monthly seems to be a good frequency though. If you have ideas or topics you would like to see covered just let me know!

      Kevin, let's talk tomorrow. I think there is opportunity in making cool things using arduino and 3D printed objects

    Thank you for the answer.

    @Kenan - No fee, this event is free. You can donate to the snack fund if you care to, but otherwise just bring yourself (and possibly your printer).

    We have had 3 of these so far and they have all been lots of fun. Now we are going bumping it up with some classes. We will have one room to hang out in and look at printers and one room for presentations.
