    Thank you all for coming out last night! Here is a solid list of most of the types of filament that you can buy currently:

    Note that Matter Hackers is my favorite filament supplier. Also mentioned last night was Taulman Nylon. Remember that printing in Nylon is advanced printing in a big way, so be aware before you buy any filament that Taulman Bridge is the currently easiest to print material.

      Meetup doesn't have the ability to reserve spaces for cash payment outside of their RSVP system. There is only one spot available at this time. Alternatively, you can come to next month's class here: http://www.meetup.com...­

    Tried to sign up and pay, but payment failed for some unknown reason. Would like to attend. How can I fix this? Will you accept my reservation and a cash payment?

      Hi Scott. I responded to your earlier message a while ago. We do take cash as long as there are spaces available. Just remind me when you get to the shop.

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.
