This workshop is going to be led by Steph Shaltes and she will be teaching OpenSCAD, which is a script based modeling tool. Joey Moriguchi and Mike Jasswoski (who presented his 3D Printers at Hack Night) will also present/assist with the workshop. We will go from software model to printed object during the workshop, detailing the general process to turn ideas into real world 3D printed objects.
Steph has an extensive background in 3D Printing hardware and software. I'll add more details on the program within the next week. Please stay tuned! : )
UPDATE 3/28: As a bonus, all attendees who create a model will receive a 3D Printed version of their work at a near-future Meetup.

UPDATE 04/08: Hi All - Just to be clear, for those attending, please make sure to bring your laptop and pre-load the OpenScad software ahead of time as we are going to be tight on lab time. Our hands-on time is going to be limited. Based on response to the workshop, we may hold another one in the near future that will focus more on lab 3D modeling work.
