This group is dedicated to 3D printing technologies and design practices, and is open to anyone wanting to learn more about this quickly evolving branch of manufacturing. Our first meeting will begin with an overview on where the industry is now, what is available, and how the group wants to see this Meetup evolve.
Local startup SD3D will be demonstrating their new Adaptive Build Environment (ABE) system before it hits Kickstarter in September. The ABE system is a filtered, temperature controlled environment chamber that monitors and streams your printing status via custom Octoprint software.
