Next Meetup

3D Printing Meetup December Topic: Print Quality 101
This will be a discussion amongst the group about the best way to get the highest print quality for FDM/FFF 3D printed parts! We'll keep it at the 101 level, though I have no doubt that there will be plenty of nerd moments where we get a bit deeper. Should a good one. We'll see you there!

What we're about

Curious about 3D printing? Already an avid 3D printer? Come join us! We'll meet at Area515 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

We hope to see you there!
