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.

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