Designing 3D models on the computer is one thing, but turning those models into real objects can be a whole other world! 3D printers are becoming more and more practical, and can be very useful for engineers, designers, and entrepreneurs. This club will learn about and practice using 3D printers, while meeting others with the same interests.

Club Meeting 11/16

Good Morning Everyone!

This week we will be meeting Thursday (11/16) from 7 pm to 9 pm in Carver 0150. We made this meeting a little longer to allow us more time for working on the final sections of the 3D Printer. This may be the last night of building the printer before calibrations start so if you haven't had a chance to work on it yet this may be your last chance this semester! We do have plans of doing this again next semester so there may be time to learn then.

If you have any suggestions for anything you would like to see or learn more of with regards to 3D Printing you can reach me at dmichele@iastate.edu. We would love to hear what you guys would like to see more of.

See you Thursday,

Dominic Michele

Vice President 3D Printing & Design
