What first inspired your interest in 3D Printing?

The recent explosion of economical 3D printers is seducing me. The idea I could produce prototypes a few feet from my chair is intoxicating. Once being able to typeset printed matter with scanned illustrations, retouched photos or computer-drawn stuff and output to laser or offset was like that. Now it's just a question of when the quality of output, price of entry and learning curve meet at some magic nexus that opens like Alice's rabbit hole to suck me in. I live quite a ways north and have another appointment on the way, so I might not make it to this meeting, but I sure hope to.

Introduction

Just your basic artist/inventor/entr­epreneur type. 3D printing interests me for making prototypes of new gadgets. Now in my 30th year of my get-rich-quick plans. Is that a light at the end of the tunnel or another train?

What Maxim H. is saying about this Meetup Group

It's a friendly, enthusiastic bunch of folks. Reminds me of the kind of people who were into computers a few decades ago, feeling their way through the many bleeding edge choices back then.
