3D Printing session

Visitors and newcomers are very welcome.

Short walk from Glenferrie train station. Car parking at Hawthorn town hall.

The main goal is to learn about and experiment with 3D printing. If you have a 3D printer, then you can bring it along and get help from many of our experienced members (or just show it off). If you've not got a 3D printer, you're still welcome to attend.

We don't just cover 3D printing, but anything related to 3D design and manufacture. There are members with experience in scanning objects into 3D models as well as designing 3D objects in various CAD/SCAD/CAM applications. There is a Lathe on premises, a Laser Cutter (not working at the moment), other (general) tools, plus the space itself has two 3D printers that can be used by members (to be shared).

For details on what 3D printing is, see

Please note: The space officially opens at 6pm, however many people arrive sometime after this, usually before 7pm.

    Hi, will anyone have a completed or partially completed Ordbot there on Monday? I have nearly everything I need to start my build (with the exception of know how)

    I have plenty of extra fasteners in all sizes if anyone is in the market to buy (at cost) and I'll bring them along.
