It's not a requirement, but do you have a 3D printer you would like to show?

Don't have one yet.

What is your preferred meeting days and times?

Monday after work or after 5PM on weekends.

What about 3D printing has caught your interest?

One of my goals is to encourage more American kids to seek careers using math. Engineers, scientists, technicians and math teachers need math skills - there are thousands of jobs after college open if people can do math. One way to encourage kids is to make replica cockpits of cars/airplanes they can sit in in middle school or elementary school playgrounds or lunch areas. And make full size static display or operating replicas for museums of designs critical to explain history. Static display replicas can be made of 3D printed parts with tabs to snap together like puzzles. It may take 1,000 3D printings to make a car or airplane fuselage with beginning engineering or CAD drafting class students for first projects. If a person likes a historic art vase, bowl, statue, a car or airplane taking about[masked] photos from different angles around the object to convert to a CAD file that can be 3D printed. Or made in a auto tape layer (ATL) or made in a auto filament placement (ATP) machine.

Introduction

I'm working to establish a network between universities so individuals and corporations can have engineering students do design work that should help students get work out of college To help design & invent medical devices, cars, airplanes, etc.
