So you got a new 3D printer for the holidays, you unpacked it, tried setting it up, downloaded something from thingiverse, but you just aren’t getting the results you hoped for. Well we are here to help. Stop by Ocean State Maker Mill this Wednesday, January 10th, to get some help from our team of experienced experts with your new printer.
Didn’t get a new printer but want some help tuning up old faithful? You are invited too – in fact, EVERYONE IS INVITED!!!! If no one comes with printers, we will hang out and talk about other 3D printing related subjects because we love this stuff.
The meeting starts at 7pm and will run till at least 10. You don’t have to come for the entire time if you are not a night owl and don’t worry if you are running late, this one will be super informal. Ocean State Maker Mill is located at 80 Fountain Street in Pawtucket but our entrance is around back in the back of the lot located at the corner of Middle and Blackstone, look for the door under the fire escape. We hope to see you there and can’t wait to see what Santa Claus brought you.
The Ocean State Maker Mill team is hard at work preparing for this year’s Moat Boat Paddle Battle. The Moat Boat Paddle Battle is a race of 3D printed, elastic-powered boats that contestants design for competition at Maker Faire and was created by the Ocean State Maker Mill team. Come by this Wednesday (September 14th) to get a sneak peak of our new moats, boats, and plans.
As always this meeting is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 7pm at 80 Fountain Street, Pawtucket, RI. Park around back (corner of Blackstone and Middle) and look for the open entrance and sign. There is no formal presentation this time around so it’s a great time to meet the team and come with questions!
A few months ago I was having a discussion with a friend about what was going to come along in 2013 for desktop 3D printing and he predicted that 2013 would be the year of materials. Thus far he is once again being proven to have his finger on the pulse. The past 6 months have seen multiple new filaments come to market. These filaments are not just experimental filaments that are fun to play around with but are actual working thermoplastics with properties that add new possibilities to our prints.
Join us for our March meeting, where we will discuss some of these new filaments, how to print with them, and why you would want to. This is your chance to find out more about the cool properties of Laywoo-d3 and the resilience of Taulman 618. This meeting is free and open to the public. We will be meeting at AS220 Labs as usual and will be getting started around 7pm on Wednesday March 13, 2013.
