 3D Printer Presentation

Curious about 3D printers and what they can and can't do?   Join Dave Bodnar as he demonstrates 3D printing and shows how these amazing new machines will allow you to make "things" that you can use with your railroad.   We will also explore SketchUp, a free 3D design program that you can use to design your own 3D objects.

This will also be a work session so bring along your tools and latest project

 Remember that we will set aside time at the end of each meeting for "show & tell" so bring along your latest project.
