The Joys and Sorrows of 3D Printing! (Meeting #7 Announcement)

EAST Knowledge is excited to host Michael Yurkoski for our seventh meeting. Join us for Michael’s talk describing his experiences with using a 3D printer in the home. All are welcome!

Michael has been doing an intense dive into the practical side of 3D printing, and he wants to share with our group the lessons he has learned. He intends to:

  • Give a brief intro into the history of hobby 3D printing
  • Explain why 3D printers are interesting
  • Expound on why 3D printers are loathsome
  • Explore how 3D printers work
  • Demonstrate how he designs a widget
  • Show off a printing like a pro (which Michael insists he is not)

We hope to have time for Q&A at the end. If you’ve been curious what all the fuss over 3D printers is about, or would like to commiserate with a fellow 3D printer enthusiast, join us for our meeting. We hope to see you there!
