      I really like what I've seen on such as Prusa model. But technically I think I'm still far from building one like what software do I need? Is there a workshop or a meetup in OC where I can absorb more technical detail?

      We are putting together a workshop on August 3rd that should allow you to do just that.

    It was awesome. I learned a lot about printing and got some tips to get my print build going. There were a lot of people there that were experts and I got some priceless advice.

    Really awesome meetup and got me going. Ordered parts from MatterHackers and completed my Mendel90 earlier this week! Works great, needs some more adjusting to keep the print bed level, but it works! Thanks for the extra push from this meetup!
