OPEN LAB: 3D Printing Third Monday

It's OPEN LAB! We're open to the public. Non-members are encouraged to come and see what Buffalo Lab is all about, check out our new space at The Foundry, see 3D printing in action and maybe consider becoming a member. If you have a 3D printer bring it with you. And being OPEN LAB, all projects and questions are welcome, not just 3D printing.

There's lots of parking available at the Foundry. Come in the side door, Buffalo Lab will be on your left.

Let's learn about this 3D printing stuff together.

see you soon!

    Thanks everyone for coming to our first monthly 3D printing Third Monday open lab.

    We've already got a diverse group of interests, designing 3D printers, building 3D printers from kits and using 3D printers to make cool stuff.

    What would you like to see at future meetings? For anyone who is worried that these meetings would be beyond you, not so. This is very new technology. Come out and play!

    I'd like to come to this and several other meetings at the Foundry. I don't have transportation and would not try to get there using buses alone. I live about 1 mile east fo UB North Campus. If it would help, I can get a bus to UB Main Street Campus and from there to any subway stop, but I would not try walking from the Subway to the Foundry. If anybody comes past my area or can get me from the train to the Foundry (and back), please let me know. Thanks.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
