Ed Nisley will describe 3D printer operation, survey some affordable printers, and explain the process that produces useful (or perhaps amusing) objects from the mathematics of solid models. Notice: There will be tchotchkes! NOTE: This meeting is in the HANCOCK CENTER. <--------------- About the Speaker Ed Nisley worked for IBM during the final Good Old Days, quit before it became fashionable, and has worked on interesting and useful projects ever since. He writes columns for Circuit Cellar and Digital Machinist magazines, tinkers with hardware & software, and frequently produces useful doodads.
