3D-printing group monthly meeting

NOVARRG (Northern Virginia RepRap Group, also at [masked]) was formed to support the 3D printing platforms available to hobbyists, whether they are homemade or found commercially. We have sponsored build groups for the Prusa and Prusa Air printers (Build group #3), MendelMax (Build group #4) and continue to collaborate on new printing technology and experiences.

If you have a 3D printer already, bring it! (Replicator, ToM, Prusa, Up!, Mosaic, Printrbot, Rostock, MendelMax, etc). Otherwise just bring your interest in this technology and ask questions!

Our parking lot can get extremely crowded, so unless you are dropping off equipment or refreshing the fridge, please park across the street: http://nova-labs.org/contact#parking

    Great meetup! I was bugging a lot of you asking about using Nylon filament. The conclusion was that I would need a higher temp hot-end to get the[masked]C for a good flow (Taulman 618). Well.. good news! Taulman just came out with a nylon that can melt at lower temps [masked]C)! I think you could have a lot of fun with the material, here's the news: http://taulman3d.com/news.html

    wish I had more than 4 hours to work on the printer, but got the heat-bed and print head assembled.

    Ah crap,I forgot about this today. I for some reason thought it was next weekend. I am thinking about building a 3d printer in the Fall,so I will look forward to meeting people at the next event.

    Great meeting. It was a very casual gathering with all experience levels represented. From people interested in purchasing a first printer to evolving their existing printer. I now have a better idea of what to look for and have a couple projects in mind. Thanks Nova Labs for hosting!

    assuming that nothing happens between now and then. I also hope to work on my BG#4 MendleMax, and my DeltaBot...

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
