Sign up for the April 16th Meetup!

Please sign up at Meetup.com for the April 16th meetup of Cape Cod Makers. The topic for the evening is 3D printing.     In addition to having people discuss their experience with the hardware and software involved, we hope to have at least one working printer there to demonstrate. If you or someone you know has a desktop-sized 3D printer, we would be thrilled if you could attend Tuesday’s meetup with your printer. Please email us at info@capecodmakers.org if you can help!

If you don’t have a printer but have 3D designs that you would like to share, please bring your laptop.  If you have sent your designs off to be created at an online 3D printing company, please feel free to bring a sample. Even if you’re not in possession of the latest in desktop fabrication technology, we’re still looking forward to seeing you.  You can meet other makers and learn more about the maker movement and Cape Cod Makers.  The meetup will be on Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. at Liam McGuire’s in Falmouth.

If want to learn more about the world of 3D printing, here is a small sample of what is available.
