We have had a few talks in the past about 3D scanning using low cost handheld solutions, now it’s time to go pro. Join us on Wednesday, March 13th as Chris Wilczewski, a Design Account Manager for FARO Technologies shares with us a demo of one of their premier products: the
FARO Design Scan Arm 2.5C with 8 Axis Turntable.

3D scanning pared with 3D printing is a great way to recreate an existing item that you need to copy or modify but might not have the original design for. While low-cost 3D printers have become good enough to rival many of their expensive professional counterparts, 3D scanning is still best left to the pros as consumer level scanners often produce a less than optimal scan quality.

This meeting is free and open to everyone. Doors will open at 7PM at Ocean State Maker Mill with the presentation starting shortly after.

Neither snow, nor rain, nor lack of our favorite filament will stop us from our monthly 3DPPVD meetings. It might be snowy and cold out there but we will be heating things up to make our DIY valentines with custom chocolate molds. Bring a chocolate bar to melt down and join us on Wednesday, February 13th at 7 pm. Like normal, we will be meeting at Ocean State Maker Mill and the meeting is free and open to the public.
