Access Notes

ADA Accessible - The building is wheelchair accessible via the main doors on SW 5th. (Automatic openers are on the pillar on the left in front of the doors.) The Community Lounge and restrooms associated with the Community Lounge are also wheelchair accessible. Seating for events can easily be removed or arranged as necessary to accommodate any needs.

Doors are locked after 7pm- we'll leave contact details so someone can get you.



We'll have two speakers. The first is Nathan Skalsky, who'll talk about his adventures with VERY large format 3D Printing. The second is R&D Plastics who'll talk about the plastic injection process and open a discussion for how it differs from 3D printing.

Still want more? We're going to try a couple new things this time.

New to 3D printing? We'll have a mini-workshop where you will learn how to 3D print your own name badge using TinkerCAD. Come at 6pm sharp! Bring a laptop and $5 to cover the cost of the print.

Iron PRINT - our design+print contest based on Iron Chef, (three master chefs battle it out by creating a full meal using a surprise ingredient). Here's how it'll go down.

  1. We'll unveil a mystery theme before the Meetup.

  2. Design something amazing using this theme. There are prizes for Best Print and Best Design. Need help with design? This is the time to ask! If you're going for Best Print, bring your printer, because you must print it entirely onsite!

  3. The crowd will vote for the Best Print and Best Design.

Please bring any laptops, software, 3D printers and filament. Participate by printing someone else's design! Are you up to the challenge?
