Portland 3D Printing Lab

ISITE Design
2030 NW Pettygrove Street
Portland, OR 97209, US (map)

Park across the street in the Conway lot. You'll need a parking tab to put on your dash. If you have one from a previous event, you may reuse it.



In January 50 Layer Geeks saw the landscape for 3D printing at the 2014 Consumer Electronics show, learned about 3D printing gearboxes (important to print parts for other 3D printers), and heard the sweet sound of a 3D printed violin.

In February, be prepared to learn more about how Portland businesses are making use of 3D printing technology for rapid prototyping as well as in finished goods. For this event we're going to try something new. If you're new to 3D printing, come half hour early and we'll give you an overview of the technology so that you can hit the ground running.

Agenda follows:

0600p : 3D printing for Beginners

0630p : Networking over light food/beverages

0700p : Intro

0710p : Community Q&A - Shout out a question, get it answered

0730p : Speaker 1 (To be Announced)

0750p : Speaker 2 (To be Announced) 0810p : More Networking!

Note 1: If you'd like to bring a printer, let Shashi know, so we can set aside table space.

Note 2: If you have a project or business you'd like to talk about, please contact the group organizer by private message. We're looking for 15-20 minute presentations. Slides aren't necessary, but we have access to a projector and plenty of table space. Good examples would be demonstrations of a new technique/tool, an overview of a service you provide, a unique project you've modeled/printed, etc. If you know a great speaker, please refer them!

Please share this with your network and bring your imagination and enthusiasm. We'd particularly like to get people from bigger corps that are using a lot of 3D printing in their design process (looking at you Nike and Intel :)
