This group was created to get together local CAD / CAM / CNC enthusiasts for learning, sharing ideas, and keeping up with what's new.

Personally, I'm a complete idiot when it comes to CAD, I keep reverting to paper and pencil rather than take on the learning curve. After building two CNC routers and beginning a CNC mini mill conversion I know a bit more about CAM and CNC but realize it's well past time that I put away the drawing board and master the entire CAD/CAM/CNC tool chain.

My initial thought for the group would be a monthly social meeting with a few other spin off groups dedicated to more specific subject areas, say beginners learning a specific CAD/CAM package, woodworkers interested in using CAD/CAM/CNC, 3D design, a group taking on a CNC group build, etc.

There is alread a very good CNC group meeting monthly in Lorton, VA but they aren't on Meetup.com. I'll post their meetiing dates here as well to generate more interest.

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.
