    Great intro to SCAD, slic3r ... and what was the mesh optimizer again?

      MeshLab. Another FOSS application.

    Excellent!! Thank you for organizing! What was the name of the publication that rated 3D printers, pls?

      The current issue of Make Magazine. The only one I disagree with was the Bukobot, which I think is a great printer.

    The attendees were an amazingly sharp lot who really caught on to everything much faster than expected. I think I might have gone a bit slow for you all, huh?

    The topic is very relevant and thanks to Robolink for hosting. James did a great job of introducing us to what is possible now. The future will explode as everyday people start building their own parts to fix things around the house.

    If people want to "look ahead" a bit, the basic intro is covered by this set of videos:

    And I will be using these objects as examples:

    http://www.thingiverse.com/apps/customizer/run?thing_id=137829&code=64f825b74bd701b7862ecf1903d29ec9

    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:161157
    And I will bring the actual 3D printed version of this object so we can look at how the program that describes it becomes the physical object.

    ...and answering any questions about those. Looking forward to meeting all of you!

    P.S. if anyone has M3 x 6 to 10mm set screws I would be very happy to pay you for a few of them. The head of the bolt I have on the drive gear is binding against the clearance hole in the base.
