Midwest RepRap Festival

midwest-reprap-meetup

Midwesterner’s should take note — here’s an event that’s happening somewhere other than New York or California! We jest, of course there are great events in the Midwestern states every year, like the Kanasas City or Detroit Maker Faires. This event puts focus on 3D printing. The Midwest RepRap Festival will be held in Elkhart, Indian March 15-17, 2013. Despite the name, the event is meant to encompass all things involved with any brand, make, or variety of 3D printing.

The owners of a local business called The Royal Phoenix have opened their doors for the weekend. Organizers have arranged for [Josef Prusa] and [Johnny R] to speak. There will also be build events (one session will show the build process of the MendelMax 2.0) so feel free to bring your own equipment for help with construction or getting it dialed in.

There is no registration fee, or tickets. But it would be best if you did fill out the questionnaire so they have some semblance of how many people might be coming.

    Going to find one of those Elkhart Indians and barter some RepRap beads for furs just like the old days. I have the pelts of eight dead Furbys which should fetch a nice price outside of Chuparosa.

    Anybody know if people will be selling kits there? I’m pretty close and would really like to get a kit that’s not imported from the UK… I can’t seem to find any US sellers

    Alex, John here from SeeMeCNC We will have our rostock MAX kits available at our shop, just a few minutes drive from the event. ALSO, I’m working with sgraber from #reprap IRC. He has a new prusa i3 design all lasercuttable. Trying to get him to do a build of a few of those as well. You could try pinging him on IRC, or flickr.com/sbgraber for pics of it

    Well, perhaps I can bug Josef Prusa about the PrusaNozzle! I live in Bloomington, IN so it’s only a short jaunt up to there..

  6. Hey folks, just letting you all know that we’ll be there! Right now we’re organizing a build event for our new MendelMax 2.0 3D printer, stay tuned for a confirmation and more details!

    Where is this Kanasas City you speak of and does having 3 a’s in it’s name make it better than Kansas City which only has 2?
