MOKA SolidWorks User Group Meeting: May 21, 2013 - Carthage, MO

The MOKA (Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas) SolidWorks User Group is having their next meeting on May 21st, and our very own Josh Boggess, 3D printing wizard, is coming to present! We hope you enjoy Josh's presentation - see MOKA SWUG's announcement below to get more info and RSVP.


Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is the process of making three-dimensional solid parts by building up successive layers of material.

Most of us by now have had some exposure to additive manufacturing and may even have access to a 3D printer.  But how much do you know about the different technologies used for additive manufacturing?

Josh Boggess from Fisher/Unitech ( will be here to discuss the different technologies used in additive manufacturing with an emphasis on FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) and PolyJet.

Josh will be bringing down a 3D printer to have on display and examples of printed parts.  So bring your questions and I hope to see you there.
