Hello all, We've secured a great location for the eminent 3D printing meetup group. We'll be convening @ VisionPulse in the sorrento valley/mira mesa area ( map link here). It's a great facility and we've got the auditorium, so we'll have plenty of room. note: the change of venue required us to change the start time to 6:00. hopefully it's not too disruptive to your schedule
As always, we'll have plenty of tables and power for those of you who are bringing your printer(s). note: If you're planning on bringing your printer, please do let me know so I can plan an appropriate space for you and have enough extension cords and power strips!
For this meetup, we don't have crafted presentation or rigid agenda. Instead we'll focus on show and tell, socializing and Q&A with other... PLUS a free-for-all 3D capture station.
Kinect 3D Capture: Throughout the meetup, we'll have a Kinect setup to let everyone play around with 3D capture. If you haven't played around with this technology, It's super cool and there are a number of utilities that make getting remarkably good volume capture quite easy. We'll have assistance available and if you bring a memory stick, you can take home a mesh or STL of yourself. If you don't already have a printer, you might be able to convince someone else to print yours! We'll be using a Pro Version of Skanect, so if you have experience with other tools, bring your Kinect and computer and we can do side-by-side comparisons.
Software: We'll use some of the sample 3d captures to run through NetFab BASIC, Repetier-Host and likely some other utilities. You'll get to see many of the little tricks that you have to figure out to make valid manifolds and good parts.
If you're a MeshLab Expert, we would love to see how you use it in your workflow.
See you all there!
