  • This location is shown only to members

Ian will give an overview of 3D printing at the hobbyist and prosumer level discussing a few of the different technologies available. basic concepts and sources of information. He will also demo the Replicator 2 from makerbot.

Afterwards we will discuss the potential of the technology with respect to making and the types of projects we think would be a good fit.

I will provide beverages and Makers in attendance are invited to bring snacks to share if the like.

See you there!

(IMPORTANT NOTE: I will send out the exact address to confirmed attendees within 1 week of the event)

    Thanks for coming everybody! Sorry to those that did not receive the address in time. I sent it out the day before the meeting via email. If you were already registered for the meetup you might see if it went into your spam folder. Next time I will check 1 hour before to see if there are any new respondents.

    I can hardly believe it, but I'm going to have to miss this meeting. I have bronchitis and wouldn't want to share it with you all. Call me selfish, but I'm going to stay home and hoard all this agony.

    Well darn. Looks like we won't be able to make it after all. Let us know if you do another 3D day though. Have fun!

      No worries Debby. Thanks for letting me know. I think we'll have a 3D sculpting and modeling day in the future.

    We've got a couple of Afinia printers and a 3D touch here. Saw the Replicator 2 at CES this week. 3D printing was the hot tech in Las Vegas! Every booth was swamped!

      Hey Phil -- That would be great! My bot appears to be on the mend but as you pointed out, it would be great to have more than one bot up and running for the meetup!

      January 22, 2013

    • Phil

      Ok cool! I'll get a laptop working, or maybe even my oqo with it so I can move it.

    I thought the 3D Printing was pretty cool, would love to be more involved in the process instead of just spectating, since I like to be more of a hands on experience kinda gal :-P

      Definitely. I will plan the next meeting around the idea of more interaction.

    I don't expect to be in town on 29dec, but might make this one. Would like to be there. I'll know better as the time approaches. I assume I can bring my husband also (he's a self-employed photographer and might be interested in this). Best to all! ..... Chila ///

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
