It's been awhile since we've had a meetup; time to remedy that! This meetup's meant for current and future users of 3D printers, as a chance to share knowledge and tips. There's no admission. Bring any projects you'd like to show off. If you'd like to bring in anything to demo, such as a printer, scanner, software, etc., please do (and post a comment here, if you would); there's plenty of table space.
We'll start with four short presentations by local users:
* "BlocksCAD: OpenSCAD for People Who Can't Code" by Matt Minuti
* "Integrating 3D Printing with traditional tools in the medical device market" by Sarah Boisvert of Potomac Photonics, Inc.
* "3D printing fractals, atoms, and more" by Mark Stock
* "Capturing Fine Detail with Professional 3D Printing" by Caylee Kozak of Formlabs

These will be followed by informal announcements anyone would like to make: describing a project, asking for help, letting people know of a great resource, etc.
We then break up for socializing and demos, with snacks and soda. Formlabs will demonstrate their new castable resin, and Zachary Sherman will show his Printrbot Simple Metal V1.
