3D Printer Show-n-tell public event.

This is a re-schedule of the December 4 event.

Our Show-N-Tell meetup are public. We will have printers on display for anyone to come browse and ask questions.

Our hosts are the great folks at Urban Steam Bar and Cafe.
I suggest you try their many drinks and their awesome street tacos. (they have much more)

List of those bringing printers:

Chris V. - Lulzbot 
Bjorn - Green Machine
Matt - Makerbot Replicator
Ken - If he ever finishes :)
Nicholas - Ultimaker
Rick - Flash Forge
John - modified Solidoodle2 
Randy - Ordbot
Ryan - MakerBot Replicator v1

**You will want to bring an extension cord and maybe a power strip. I will bring some, but will not have enough for everyone.

    I didn't get the name of the person that gave me a printed bracelet? -Thank you for it... Could you answer a couple of questions for me?

      TY, the CTC is only 750 (or 1000 for the fancy clear version - I'm not sure I read any other difference?) both dual extruders plus free shipping on ebay...kinda hard to resist compared to the Makerbot 2500...or Flash 1200

      They both have good points, patience and a commitment to this is a must. It will not be your last ptr. I am happy with the FF, it is a viable choice but this is the only ptr I have printed on except fro a really big one. They both have issues but I work through them. I can see another in the future.

      My son showed the robot you gave him to his whole 5th grade class and they thought it was neat what can be done. - Thanks.

    I converted the urban steam logo into a coaster and uploaded it to thingiverse :
    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:230839 I haven't tried printing it yet... Let me know if there are any issues with it.

      Just updated the thing to make it thinner (2.75mm) I printed one in PLA (which I'm still learning) used 20% infil, .75mm shells. Slowed the print to 60% mid-way to slow the warping. Took 45minutes with a .35 nozzle.

      Also, I noticed that the Urban Steam website doesn't list our event on their calendar.

      I saw that too. Kelly and I are worried about fitting everyone in the space as is. With close to 50 RSVP at this point. History says we will get close to 70 for the evening. That is a good # without being shoulder to shoulder in the space.

    LOL!!! I *just* saw this! I will finish... some. day. :)

      progress??

      January 19, 2014

    • Ken M.

      Working on the firmware now. Made pretty good progress on Saturday, got Pronterface working, all axis are now moving in the correct directions and all axis will 'home' correctly! Maybe in time for the next SnT! I have a few more firmware tweaks to add then hopefully it'll be testprint time!

    Hi. I have a patent on a pistachio nut opener. Is anyone interested in helping me determine if 3D printing is an option for me to get my product manufactured and on the market? My SLA prototypes are about a 1" cube in size. I will be at the next Meetup.

    • Polygonz 3.

      Yes! I am a CAD designer specializing in designs for print. I will be wearing a shirt that says "unfriend me on hatebook" (my own design) - Tommy

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
