Interested in learning about 3D Printers? Lance K. will be showing you how to download a 3D file from Thingiverse, import into Cura and Octoprint (3D printing software), making sure the 3D printer is running properly, and completing a 3D print. The file will be chosen before hand to print for sake of time so multiple people can practice. Lets print the future!

Electronics Monthly
Sep 27 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

This is a community meet-up event for people who are into electronics. It’s a round table discussion around rectangular tables about things that are ‘electroniky’ and ‘programmy’ and ‘makery’ and ‘classical hackery’. Come to pick the brains of our local techno-gurus, be a local techno-guru, or(1) just sit back and bask in the ‘geekery’.

The events usually consist of mini-extemporaneous presentations and discussion about pending projects.
