Please join us this Wednesday, May 10th!  Rhode Island maker legend Brian Jepson will be our speaker. Brian has recently received a desktop milling machine (a cousin to our beloved 3D printers) and has been working on creating his own machinable wax to use with it and he is going to share this adventure with us.

This event is free and open to the public, hope to see you there!  We’ll kick things off about 7pm.

Ocean State Maker Mill is located at 80 Fountain Street, Pawtucket, RI.  Please use the back parking lot, and enter at the loading dock door at the far end.

This month’s meeting, we’ll feature guest speaker Philip J. Angileri, owner of NarrowBase LLC.  Phil will be expounding on the pros and cons of owning and running a 3D printed business.  Starting NarrowBase from the ground up, Phil is well versed on the topic.

Join us this Wednesday, August 10th 2016, to learn more!  We will be kicking things off at 7pm at Ocean State Maker Mill in our *NEW SPACE* (80 Fountain Street, Back Parking Lot, farthest door on the left, Pawtucket, RI – look for the OSMM sign).

This event is free and open to everyone, veterans and new comers alike.

4Years

In July of 2012, 3DPPVD met for the first time. With the goal of helping Rhode Islanders learn more and do more with 3D printing, we continued to meet monthly. Now, four years later, we have reached hundreds of 3D printing enthusiasts across New England and it’s time to celebrate!

Join us this Wednesday, July 13th 2016, for the usual 3D printing banter and of course cake! We will be kicking things off at 7pm at Ocean State Maker Mill (80 Fountain Street, Unit 318, Pawtucket, RI). This event is free and open to everyone, veterans and new comers alike.

3D printing and other forms of digital fabrication really shine when you know how to design your own objects. There are many options out there for those interested in 3D modeling, but sadly, many of the pro-level tools are outside the budget of many individuals. Now a new contender, OnShape,  has entered the ring and is making waves with its amazing list of features and even better price for makers – free!

This Wednesday, November 11th 2015, OnShape’s founder Jon Hirschtick will be joining us to demo some of OnShape’s features and answer your questions about his newest entry into the 3D Modeling world (Jon was also the founder of SolidWorks). We will be kicking off the event at 7pm at Ocean State Maker Mill, 80 Fountain Street, Unit 318, Pawtucket, RI.

As always, this event is free and open to the public.  If you have never attended before, there is never a better time than now!  After Jon’s presentation, feel free to stick around to find out more about 3D Printing and Ocean State Maker Mill.
