Summer is officially come to an end, so it's time to start back up the PDX Hardware Startup Meetups. Hopefully everyone enjoyed their summer and is ready for the rain.

The next PDX Hardware Startup Meetup is going to be October 28th, at 5:30-8:00 PM.

R&D Plastics is a local Plastic Injection Molder and is going to come talk about plastic injection molding. Here is an abstract of their presentation:

"As a new or infrequent designer/developer of injection molded products it can be very difficult to understand the impact of design features, material selection, and tool construction on the cost and lead-time of your products. The decisions you make have a great impact on part cost and tool build lead-times.

In this session, we will discuss what to expect when designing and developing a plastic injection molded part. We will provide examples that show the impact of good design decisions and how they greatly improve the product development cycle. Your understanding of the injection molding workflow and what you should expect from your injection molding partner will guide you through good decision making for a successful product release."

Charlie O’Bosky & Kyle Tarr will be joining us and giving the presentation.

As always, there will be free Pizza and Beer provided for everyone and some time to share any projects you are working on.

Location: PSU Business Accelerator. 2828 SW Corbett. The building can be tricky to find, and the best way to get directions is to use the intersection of "SW Corbett & SW Meade", that way Google Maps won't take you on a wild goose chase.

Parking: It's FREE. You can park anywhere behind the building for free. There should be plenty of parking so don't worry about having to pay for a spot.

Please share this event with anyone you think may be interested, the more people we can get involved the more beneficial it will be to everyone.
