Last year, the 3nd annual event, had nearly 1.500 people! This year we are hoping to see that number grow again and invite even more people from all over the globe. Invitations are being sent to some of the biggest and brightest in the reprap community, as well as an open invitation to anyone who wants to come. Don’t miss out on the chance to be a part of this years MRRF!
Highlights of the event:
LIVE PRESENTATIONS Come hear presentations on some of the highlights of reprap projects, examples of innovative ideas and designs and even some really neat examples of what can be done with 3D printers. We’ll also have one of the most active teachers in the U.S. with 3D printing explaining how to get kids in schools to grab ahold and use 3D printing.
TEST AND TUNE Experts will be on hand to help you troubleshoot issues or take your prints to the next level! The event is FULL of people who want to see everyone become an expert. Whether it’s a simple question about a software setting, a new mechanical design, recommendations on where to go to get involved with reprap or more, don’t hesitate to ask anyone at the event.
