Do you currently own a 3D printer?

No.

If you don't currently own one, are you interested in building one?

Yes. I actually built a xy router machine 20 years ago. I can build prototype boards with microprocessors that I program and interface to a serial port.

What do you hope to do with 3D printing technology?

Not sure, but I would like to learn how it works, and the economics of production of unique items that could be sold at my store or EBay.

What sorts of topics / meetings would you like this meetup group to have?

Advantages/disadvantages of different types of 3d printers. What are the limitations. What are the cost of raw materials. How can you design your own files that can then be printed. Sources of ready to go files for printing. Modifying existing files for customized printing.
