Community Journal #3

It’s arrived! Welcome to the third edition of the Shapeways Community
Journal! We’ve compiled exciting events happening throughout the community,
both in person and online. Whether you’re an
active member of the community looking to see whats happening or someone looking to
find ways to get more involved, you’ve come to the right place!


Last week we had our monthly NYC Meetup at Desmond’s Tavern, and
we had a great turnout and a lot of fun!

The next meetup in the NYC area will be our Elasto meetup on July 17th, so
keep on the lookout for more information and updates by joining our group.

If you want to host an Elasto meetup in your city and meet other Shapeways users check here for more information!

Also, if you want to learn a little more about the quality of Elasto, check out MrNib’s helpful information here on the forums.
