    Good little meetup. Very worthwhile.

    Hoping to share a practical application of this technology. My profile photo is a model I designed of a front drive sprocket for the Kawasaki Ninja 500 motorcycle. I'm hoping to get this printed in durable plastic for fit and function testing before having this professionally printed in titanium or stainless steel. This design improves the fuel economy of the Ninja 500 to over 70 MPG.

      Hm...well, if you are able to come a few minutes early, perhaps you can talk with Joseph Chiu about how to fit this into his workshop. Otherwise, I will be happy to talk with you on Saturday about possibly making this another workshop in the summer.

    Are there good alternatives to the expensive SolidWorks?

    is there a more detailed agenda than:

    • How to take a 3D Model you created or found on a site like Thingiverse and print it out.
    • The difference between ABS and PLA filament
    • Troubleshooting tips
