3D Printer Workshop and Get Together Party

Sat, 09/28/2013 - 10:00am to 3:00pm

 After the success and fun from our first get together with dozens of people attending and 9+ printers on site, CT Hackerspace is looking to make this event a regular get together. We welcome everyone to attend. Like last time, we plan on having pizza / hot dogs / beverages, etc..

We want to continue the "Learn-Make-Share" culture CT Hackerspace prides itself in celebrating by becoming your local 3D Printing community and forum (SIG) in anything 3D related. We have realized that the that our members and attendees combined knowledge and experience in 3D Printing can be a tremendous resource to each other as well as the community at large. We welcome everyone, from novices wanting to know more about 3D Printers to Experts showing off their latest builds and customizations. We also plan on doing some builds on site the day of the event as well

Getting Here!!! It's a little tricky getting to the space for the first time. Park in the parking lot at the end of Silk St, Watertown CT, see the below image. Wall up the ramp and enter the door on the right. Once in the building, take the 2nd door on the right, go up one flight of stairs to the 3rd floor, go through a door and take an immediate right. Walk down the hall a few feet, we'll be on the left, can't miss us!

Rich wants everyone to know that we are offering you the opportunity to build your very own Filament Spool Holder at the 3D Printer Workshop.

Our spool holders have several options to choose from:

Single or Dual Spool
Bowden Cable Style Filament Guide or no filament guide
3mm or 1.75mm (for filament guide sizing only)
If you are interested, we ask that you put a comment on the event page with what configuration spool holder you are interested so we can make sure all the necessary parts are there. We will have extra parts available but those will be on a first come first serve basis.

The wood is cut on our CNC Router and the filament guide is 3D printed. It should take you about a half hour for you to assemble the Spool Holder.

The cost is only $5 to cover the materials. 

 Pete will be doing an introduction / demonstration to Solidworks during the 3D Printer Workshop. Discussion will start early afternoon on Saturday.
