Curious about 3D printing? Already an avid 3D printer? Come join us! We'll meet on the 3rd Monday of each month and will focus on a particular topic for each meetup. Below are some example topics:
Materials - What types of materials are there, what are the differences, and how to print with them. Support - Where to use it, what type to use, settings for using it, special support material (with dual extruders), and print cleanup after removal. Finishing - ABS/Acetone Vapor, Gluing together multi-part prints, XTC3D, retouching, heat forming Printer Modification - Common issues and fixes, tweaks/hacks, upgrades, and tuning Slicing - The art of G-Code generation, how to optimize for the best prints, getting into advanced settings, slicing software, and best practices CAD Basics - How to design your own models and make them 3D printable
In the second of our Getting Geeky topics, we're diving deep into the topic of print beds! We'll touch on the different surfaces available, the bed materials themselves, bed heating, and much more.
For our monthly community prints we're going festive for December! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus, or anything else, print out and bring with you something decorative. We're leaving it up to you to determine what you want to pick!
Have a Happy Holiday and come and geek out with us for our final meetup of 2019!
