Another great meetup with lots of new faces. Thanks everyone for putting up with the intense heat upstairs that day.
Mmm... Chocolate! Thanks to Adam for showing his chocolate 3D printer in action.
And thanks to everyone else who came out to learn about 3D printing and to all the regulars who brought parts and printers to display. The next meetup will be on Monday, May 27th.
Just a reminder: Site 3 coLaboratory runs many interesting courses, including ones on 3D printing. The next one will be 3D Printing lvl 2: Grasshopper and Rhino with Bi-Ying Miao and Matthew Compeau on May 4th. Be sure to check it out!
We had another great turnout, and got to see some cool prototypes in action!
Renae brought in the final version of his giant LEGO minifig, weighing over 1 kg!
Jacob and James brought in their dual filament creator, and Jacob showed off his awesome Iron Man helmet print.
Did you miss our March meetup? Come to our next event on April 29th!
Thanks to all of the new faces who came out to last night's meetup! It was great to hear everyone's ideas and questions about how 3D printing could be used to be creative and practical.
I want to call attention to an amazing print by Renae. Many of you will be familiar with my 4X-size LEGO minifig, but Renae took things even further and started on a 10X-size LEGO minifig:
The legs are still in progress, but I can't wait to see it finished at next month's meetup. (Which is March 25th - mark your calendar!)
On the right there is my print of a 3D scanned deity figure. The winter is making it difficult to get any spray painting done while it's still light out, but it's nearly done now.
See everyone next month!
We had a huge turnout in January, even with two meeting in a single month!
The increased media attention around 3D printing has inspired people a lot of people to check it out, and get involved with classes and demos.
Our next meeting will be on February 25 starting at 7pm. Hope to see you there!
Thank you so much to everyone who came out to our inaugural meetup of 2013. We had an incredible turnout of new attendees, and it was wonderful to talk with you all.
Our normal schedule is to have a meetup on the last Monday of every month, and that's what we're going to switch to now. So join us again in just two weeks time for the second meetup of 2013 on Monday, January 28th.
Hope to see everyone again!
