Hi Philipp,

That would be cool! I shall see you at 8. The Witbox is in the same room as
the RepRap, right?

I can introduce you to the Witbox. How about 8pm?

Hi everyone,

I'm interested in trying out some 3D printing for the first time. I have
some basic models put together in tinkercad. I know it's maybe not a great
tool, but it's very quick to start with. I've also managed to get Slic3r to
generate a RepRap print path.
I just wondered if someone would be around to chat about the printer in
Metalab and the whole process in general some time. Perhaps even this

Thanks in advance!
