APMM Zoom Meet-Ups

We're hosting informal and interactive Zoom Meet-Ups for our members to get together in virtual space - make sure your membership is current and active, then join us! (Members in good standing will receive an email message with Zoom meeting details and links about a week before the session. Some sessions are open to all.) All meetings begin at 10 AM PT/11 AM MT/12 PM CT/1 PM ET/6 PM BT

Wednesday, November 18 - Affordable 3D Printers: Paul Chabala leads a meet-up on how low-cost machines are used for high-level work. This is going to be an open discussion about tiered output volumes and individual use cases in regard to 3D printing processes and technology. 3D printing is a vast and growing landscape, ranging from small - affordable “desk top” printers to high tech – high cost “industrial printers”. Model making and rapid prototyping is an unique application for 3D printing, and this will be an opportunity for the community to share knowledge/experience while investigating new AM/3D opportunities with each other.
Open to the public - join us!

Time: Nov 18, 2020 01:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
