Tonight was the one year anniversary of the Friday 3D Printing Community Hangout! A number of special guests were in the hangout tonight including Heather Womack of #3DPinkMafia fame, Lauren from Abuzz Designs, and even Tessa from SparkyFace5. What a delightful event. I showed up late, but very much enjoyed seeing everyone!
Glenn and Xander hosted the Friday 3D Printing Community Hangout this week. The topic was filaments and I found the discussion fascinating. I found Repkord’s insights on scaling production and the discussion on pellet systems were particularly interesting.
I was a wee late as I was trying to sooth a congested son, but I did get to visit with my pals this week at the Friday Night 3D Printing Community Hangout hosted by Matt from How I Do It. We talked about our sources of inspiration… and revealed the results of the new logo! I loved visiting with the community again!
After a bit of a hiatus, I got to join my friends for the Friday Night 3D Printing Community Hangout. This week, we were at Mitch 3D. The topic– “Making Money with 3D Prints”. I talked about my craft show and Etsy endeavors as well as doing training sessions.
My “day job” has been demanding extra attention which has been leaving my own TGAW 3D Channel a little neglected. Thanks to some community hangouts, however, I’m still making some appearances on YouTube. This weekend, I participated in about 4 1/2 hours of live streams.
This week the Friday 3D Printing Community Hangout was hosted by Nilla Bean. The topic was a fascinating one– Community Outreach. This one was one of my favorite discussions and there were a few surprises in the mix. Josh Ajima from Design Make Teach was able to join us despite short notice and a busy week of STEM Camp and speaking at the International Society for Technology in Education conference in Houston. Another surprise guest– Chuck Hellebuyck from Filament Friday fame. He started off with a bang with a wonderfully inspiring endorsement of Snap Circuits.
I usually try to get myself off the stream at midnight my time. This week, the conversation was so fascinating, I stayed on an extra hour. Great stream, team!
Ladies of 3D Printing Live Stream
Just about 11 hours after I signed off of #F3DCH, I joined a group of talented women on the 3D Printing Ladies Live Stream! We continued the discussion of Community Outreach and chatted about some technical stuff like 0.25mm nozzles.
This discussion will stick with me a while. A community question from 3D Printed Aspie on STEM versus STEAM made me realize how fitting it is that I have a photo of Kurt Vonnegut hanging above my MakerGear M2.
Another highlight– a cameo from my oldest son, Sagan, to give Joel Telling (his favorite YouTuber) an on-air high five. Oooh and also my bird, Blue Tail Talon Scream, made his YouTube debut.

The 3D Printing Ladies Live Stream airs the first Saturday of each month. Keep an eye on Twitter for the August episode!
Last night I participated in another Friday Night 3D Printing Community Hangout. The episode started discussing filaments where I had to confess I am pretty homogeneous (loyal) with my brand. I almost exclusively use ColorFabb filaments with just recently venturing out to give Hatchbox and Polyalchemy a try.
Later the conversation turned to something very close to my heart — outreach and bringing 3D Printing to our communities.
