3D-Printing Demonstration at Reston Regional Library

This will be a public demonstration of 3D printing in collaboration with the Fairfax County Library system and the Reston Regional Library. Various printers will be available for viewing and for demonstration.

This is being put on by NOVARRG (Northern Virginia RepRap Group), formed to support the 3D printing platforms available to hobbyists. We help people build the Prusa version of RepRap printers and we have a build group in progress. To date we have had three classes of hobbyists go through a group build process making dozens of printers.

With interest growing we are now forming a new printer build group!

Note to Members: Bring any version of a 3D printer (Makerbot, ToM, Replicator, Prusa, Up!, Mosaic, Printrbot, etc) to the event and/or your interest in this great technology! We want to share with the world!

*Friday 11/2 update* Please pass the word using your own favorite social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, etc, etc).

    Very good turnout of both 3D printer builders and community members who were interested in learning about the excitement around 3D printing. Had a great time and hope there will be more events like this.

    Phenominal demonstration folks. I learned a a lot of things at this one event. The number one thing I learned is that I am very interested in joining the next "make your own printer" group. Thanks for all the great tips. Nice event!

    I think I've mentioned it, but my Makerbot Replicator will tag along.
