3D Printer Users Meetup at Artisan’s Asylum

DATE:  June 28, 2016     CATEGORIES:  Blog, Education, Events, Get Involved!

meet up

On June 27th, around 50 current and future users of 3D printers from all over the Greater Boston area came out to Artisan’s Asylum for a special social and user-friendly demos!

The night started out with four presentations by local users:

  • “BlocksCAD: OpenSCAD for People Who Can’t Code” by Matt Minuti
  • “Integrating 3D Printing with traditional tools in the medical device market” by Sarah Boisvert of Potomac Photonics, Inc.
  • “3D printing fractals, atoms, and more” by Mark Stock
  • “Capturing Fine Detail with Professional 3D Printing” by Caylee Kozak of Formlabs

Afterwards, the attendees socialized and showcased various demonstrations of their 3D printers (Formlabs demonstrated their new castable resin and Zachary Sherman with his Printbot Simple Metal V1). Overall, the event was well attended and the demos were a success. We look forward to having more people familiarize themselves with the 3D Printer revolution and are excited for more events and meet ups at Artisan’s Asylum!
