Steppingstone 3D Printer User Group

I'd like to start a user group in the SouthEast Michigan area. We (Steppingstone School) is located in Farmington Hills right around Middlebelt and Grand River. If you are interested in participating, please contact me here (yes, join the RepRap community if you haven't already).. We have a functioning MendelMax 1.5+ and are in the process of building a Cossel Delta printer (at the parts ordering and parts printing stage). This group is open to all.

I believe that this group should be open to kids and adults. The MendelMax was build by a group of 6-8th graders and many kids of various ages are interested in 3D printing. This could also be a place to get parts (order in bulk?), advice, encouragement, and support as needed. Additionally, learning to use a good CAD program and the various Slicer programs would be part of our mission.

Let me know if you are interested. I'm considering having an initial meeting sometime in April. Let me know what days and times work for you. It has to be after school and maybe around 7 pm? An occasional weekend? Weekly? Monthly? All things to discuss.
Happy Printing!

I would be interested in attending.
I'm just getting started.
I live in Romeo Michigan, but work in Redford.

I've started collecting parts for building a RepRap Prusa Mendel I3, and if I get it running - would build a "MEGA" I3.

You can contact me here - or via my personal email: JoeComunale (at) Comcast.Net
Please put "RepRap 3D Printer" in the subject line.

Hope to hear from others wanting to build and use this exciting machine.

One possibility, if prople are interested is to see if a makerspace such as TechShop in Allen Park could be a possible place to meet up and share 3d knowledge. Is there any interest in that idea?
