Hello MakerHive! Neighbor gave me your card.
My name is Mark stay at home Dad raising 3 sons. I semi retired early from 20 year rein being in the electronic service industry and sold off my computer store years ago. I have caught the 3D print bug bad back in April. Started with a FolderTech DIY Prusa i3 Kit used that to print another Prusa i3 work in progress with a belt driven gregs wade E3D v6, Arduino Mega 2560, RepetierHost. I'm very interested in your meetings there isn't much in this cute little town. I would like to share at the meetings or here what I have learned in the wonderful world of RepRap.

That's a great looking Benchy. Nice Prusa enclosure, too!
We meet every week on Thursday, a mile or two from the exit 92 ramp in Elkhart. We'd love to meet you and share our projects! People start showing up at 6, and it's not uncommon to stay until midnight. Bring projects, tools, flying RC toys, etc. It's great to meet you, and I think you'll have a lot of fun! You can keep in touch with us and check the events calendar on our FaceBook page www.facebook.com/themakerhive/ or meetup.com.themakerhive
Also, don't miss the Midwest RepRap fest in March. It's the 3D printing event of the year for RepRaps, there were more than 100 printers last year and we had thousands of visitors walk through. This year we're putting more energy into marketing the event and expect it to be bigger than ever.
