This first ever Minneapolis Shapeways meetup will be a gathering of creative 3D artists and interested folks, showing awesome 3D prints and chatting about 3D printing and Shapeways.

We'll meet at The Mill, a newly opened makerspace in Minneapolis with premium maker toys, and plenty of free parking space.

If you're new to Shapeways, its a site that allows designers to open an online store selling their digital designs. If you have a few minutes, take a quick look to see what its all about: http://www.shapeways....

At the meeting, we'll be showing 3D prints and chatting about how small businesses can profit by leveraging this powerful technology only recently made available to individuals and small businesses.

We'll be discussing many topics like Product Design, Small Business Marketing, Creative Thinking, Entrepreneurs, Prototyping, and Kickstarting projects.

Bring yourself, your friends, your 3D prints and your questions, or shoot me an email at marcus (at) denali3Ddesign (dot) com if you have any questions!

    How was the meetup. I was not able to attend. Maybe next one!

      It was fun! I showed some of my 3D prints, gave a tour of the Shapeways website, and we watched a 3D print video. One of the Mill's members had a RepRap 3D printer going making a mouse skull blown up about 10x life size.

      After the Shapeways event, Brian gave a tour of The Mill and its tools. Feedback has been totally positive from the attendees.

      The next one will be in a month or so - I'll post here when that gets finalized.

    Question from a member: Are kids allowed at The Mill?

    Yes indeed! As long as they're at least 12 and accompanied by a parent, kids are allowed at the Mill.
