  Program:  DIY 3D Printing: Hardware & Software

  Speaker:  Ed Nisley,
  About the topic:
  The hype cloud surrounding do-it-yourself 3D printing conceals 
a simple reality: DIY 3D printers transform mathematical 
descriptions into plastic parts. 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!

  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. Being that sort 
of guy, he rides a recumbent bicycle festooned with customized 
plastic parts.
