Anyone in the NewYork Area

Post by Numonic » Mon Dec 10, 2012 1:39 am

It'll be nice to be able to join in a Google hang out and share tips about printing and what not to do. Both on UP plus printers and Minis.
Best practices
Basics on positioning for better prints
PLA
What are good objects to print on like acrylic for Minis
Things of that nature.

Awesome we should meet up sometime I'm getting my printer soon maybe around January, developing figures.
How is your Up Plus prints coming along as well as your milling machine. What do you work on at the moment if you don't mind me asking?
I live in BK and work in the city as well, always working on 3d for work and my own personal work as well. Thinking of learning Solidworks or Inventor I like them both but just get frustrated with it's constraining way of modeling. I like SpaceClaim and Inventor fusion best I've seen for a person wanting to dabble in 3d for manufacturing but have a basis in polygon modeling.

I am in orange county, which is about 50 miles nw of nyc and would like to meet up and share tips and such. Google hang out is a good idea for starting out so it requires no traveling effort. Then perhaps we can plan meetups and events.

I agree in the upcoming month I'll most likely be getting the Up Mini and it would be great to first try out Google Hang out first, then as we get to know each other we can schedule meet ups.

Had our first Google Hangout /Skype meetup, went well met up with Ftdesigns. Spoke about printers workflows and software and the future status of 3d printing. I encourage anyone in the NYC,New Jersey and Connecticut area to join in.

I use solidworks pretty much exclusively now, for CAM is use HSMworks.

I'm working on all sorts of things, but my main project will stay under wraps until I gather the will and time to write up a patent application.

That is awesome we should hang out maybe go to a Diner and maybe bring a printed object for discussions trouble shooting and inspirations for topics and inspirations.

Hello, kinda late here but is anyone still kickin' around? I am from the Albany area, and will be trying to get to the 3-D Printing Conference this April 10th to the 12th. Did anyone setup a hangout? What materials have you had success with? Nice to meet everyone!
