The Linux Users' Group of Davis (LUGOD) will be holding the following meeting:

  October 21, 2013
  7:00pm - 9:00pm

  "Printrbot Simple" 3D printer
  with Tim Feldman, of Davis Makerspace

  We will demonstrate a "Printrbot Simple" 3D printer
  (http://printrbot.com/shop/printrbot-simple/), successfully assembled by
  a group of novices from a $300.00 kit made by a local company.
  We will also explain and demonstrate the process of using Linux software
  for 3D printing, including getting designs for 3D-printable objects,
  either by downloading free designs from the Web, or by designing them
  ourselves using free Linux software such as OpenSCAD; and it includes
  actually controlling the 3D printer using more Linux software such as
  Slic3r and Pronterface.

  We will also briefly talk about Davis Makerspace
  (http://davismakerspace.org/), a free local resource for all kinds of
  creative people . Our space has 3D printers and other tools used by makers;
  and most importantly, it has knowledgeable people who love sharing their
  expertise and enthusiasm about all things geeky, including Linux.

This meeting will be held at:

  Davis Public Library
  Blanchard meeting room
  315 East 14th Street
  Davis, California 95616
