Graphics, Modeling, Rendering, Compositing, VFX, beer, and networking. If it involves 3 dimensions, we're down for it.  Group is for programmers, modellers, and animators of all kinds.  Whether 3D is just hobby, or your day job.  All industries welcome: games, VFX, architecture, medical, etc. Also please check out the NURDS blog:

Our meetups are a chance to talk to other 3D professionals over a drink or two.  We usually meet somewhere around the financial district for weekday happy hours.
