For our 4th Meetup, I'll walk you thru making a model in Sketchup that can be 3D Printed, upload it Shapeways, and choose a material for printing.
This meetup coincides with a Sketchup meetup, which you can read more about here: http://www.meetup.com/Twin-Cities-SketchUp-User-Group/eve...
The location is same as our previous Shapeways Meetups: The Mill, 2300 Kennedy Street NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413. Look for the green building at the end of the building complex at 2300 Kennedy St NE.
