3D Printing Introduction – Youtube LiveStream Friday 17th 7.45pm ACST

AREG is pleased to confirm that our next meeting will be streamed live on Youtube via the HamRadioDX Channel!

The broadcast will start on Friday 17th September:

  • 7.45pm ACST
  • 8:15pm AEST
  • 1015 UTC

 


The presentation by Scott VK5TST will provide an introduction to filament based 3D printing. While the technology is large, and there are many ways to use and enjoy it, this is based on one person’s experiences. I approached 3D printing as getting a new tool to help with other hobbies, rather than my hobby being build and development of the printer.

The presentation will discuss the technology, the process, equipment (software, printer and consumables) with some tips on how to get started. Not to mention a few lessons over a year or so of playing with the hobby.


The Amateur Radio Experimenters Group will be hosting the presentation live at our clubrooms at the same time, Phelps Court, Fulham. Doors will be open from 7.15pm. COVID Safe protocols will need to be observed – face masks will need to be worn and COVID Check in will be mandatorty.
