Meetups, Open Houses & Exhibitions

3D Printer User Group Meet-up

Tuesday September 29th, 7-9pm
Meet-up Event Link

This meetup is meant for current and future users of 3D printers, as a chance to share knowledge and tips. There’s no admission. Definitely bring any projects or creations you’d like to share.

We’ll start with a few 5 minute presentations by some local users:

* “My Path to 3D Printing and Lessons Learned” by Zachary Sherman
* “Minecraft and 3D Printing” by Eric Haines
* “Local Recycled Filament” by Adam Proctor, aka Atom Jaay

These will be followed by any informal announcements anyone would like to make: describing a project, asking for help, letting people know of a great resource. We then break up for socializing and demos, with snacks (none 3D printed, yet) and sodas.

7 pm – arrive
7:15 – talks and announcements
7:45 – let the schmoozing and demos commence!
8:00 – optional Artisan’s Asylum tour; worthwhile if you’ve never been here before
9:00 – time to leave and do great things


MASSDestruction Robot Competition

Saturday October 10th, 7-10pm
Register to participate or donate!

This is the first insect class combat event in the Boston area! In order to build the robot arena, Artisan’s Asylum (a 501c3 Non-Profit) is collecting tax-deductible donations from the builders community. Founding supporters who donate over $50 will receive priority registration at a discounted rate. If you would like to donate and receive a code for priority registration, please go here and the code will be emailed to you within 24 hours. Until the funding goal of $4000 is reached, event registration is available at an elevated rate so that we can actually build the arena and hold the event. Once the arena is funded, event registration will drop to $25, but the event won’t happen without your help. Please register or donate so that we can bring fighting robots to New England.
