November Meeting: RepRap 3D Printer

Date: November 12th, 2008
Time: 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Location: Omniture, Inc.

PLUG:

Shane Hathaway will be showing off his open source 3D printer. From Shane:

I’m sure many of you have seen videos of the RepRap “Darwin”, the open
source 3D printer. Now how would you like to see one in person? I just
built one and I wouldn’t mind showing it off and talking about the project.

See the RepRap section of my blog and the project’s main web site:

I’m tweaking the machine and it prints better every day. If we have a
PLUG meeting about it, I hope to get some feedback on how I might
improve the printing. I am also interested in helping out others who
are considering building their own RepRap.

In other news, I believe we have our meeting location with Omniture settled. Omniture values PLUG and its members. They want to continue to host the meetings. New internal sponsors have been located, and some of the rules relaxed to make it more accommodating should things change in the future. I apologize for the gap in meetings due to the shakeup. Also, I’d like to publicly apologize to Stuart Jansen who had agreed to present last month. We hope that we can entice Stuart to present again at a later date.
