  • 3D Printer 101 and Hangout
    You're invited to come and hang out with the 3D printing crowd at Ace Monster Toys. We have a low-key gathering every two weeks. Everyone from newcomer to expert is welcome. AMT membership is not required. We start with 3D printer 101. This training is now required for AMT members who want to use our printers. It takes about 30 minutes or so. You may leave after the training if you don't want to hang out, or you may skip the training and show up later. The remainder of the meeting is unstructured; we tend to do whatever the attendees feel like doing. For example: Design for 3D printing can be daunting. Sometimes we plug in the projector and demonstrate the basics of CAD for 3D printing. Got a simple project in mind? Maybe we can bring it to life! If you're having trouble with your printer, bring it along; we'll get you going! (Contact the steward if you think the issue is more extensive than can be handled at a hangout). Have a new project to show off? We'd love to see it! Have you built your own printer? Bring it for show-and-tell! Did you _know_ you can build your own? We'll show you what's involved. So grab your enthusiasm and your curiosity, and join us!
