    I loved this class, especially the hands-on experience even though I couldn't print anything, I still loved it! And the friendliness and camaderie among the people too. I highly recommend it and I will be back. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

      Hey Travis, Thanks so much for your questions. This is a class for beginners with little or no background in 3D modeling or printing. We will give a basic overview of CAD programs focused on beginners like Autodesk 123D, Tinkercad, Sketchup and our new app Morphi for tablet. We would like to have weekly classes if possible - we're working on it so we'll keep you posted!

      That's great Robert! The class is filled due to space constraints but we can let you know if someone cancels. We will try to schedule more classes in the upcoming days/weeks. Stay tuned!

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.
