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 premesis, 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).

    Thanks for coming along everyone.

    We weren't quite expecting the sudden rush that we actually got, so if we seemed a bit surprised on the night, now you know why!

    We've updated the description on our events in the future to give a better impression of what to expect (ie: not talks and presentations, but rather a collaborative working environment).

    If people have any suggestions we would like to hear them. We're currently trying to improve our new people experience, so we welcome the input.

    Once again, great to see everyone!

      Hi Stuart, as a first time new person, and a regular Meetup go-er, I thought that the 3D Printing Session was a great experience. Yourself and the other members were very welcoming and we really appreciated the tour of the space and intro to the machines.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
