Canceled: S.E. Michigan CNC Enthusiast Group: Maker Works.

  community member   < less

For folks who want to get started with CNC as well as veterans to share information. Focus of the group is anything CNC-related: projects, additive machines like the Makerbot or subtractive mills, CAD, CAM, and the holy war of issues like Servos vs. Steppers, NURBS vs. Meshes, and EMC2 vs. Mach3.
Meetings are normally on the first Wednesday of the month (except when they land on a holiday and Maker Works is closed), free and open to everyone and you don't have to be a member of Maker Works to attend.
With the approach of winter, if the weather is too inclement for safe travel, the meeting may be cancelled if conditions warrant it.
Any CNC-related topic is game and if you have something to show off, please bring it.
For more info, visit: SEMICNC Yahoo! Group https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/semicnc/info
Maker Works, 3765 Plaza Dr. Free. 734-222-4911. frontdesk@maker-works.com https://www.maker-works.com/events/se-michigan-cnc-enthusiast-group [map]
