3DPUG Manchester was started in June 2012. It is as a meeting for 3D printing enthusiasts to exchange knowledge and advice on building, maintaining and operating hobbyist-type 3D printers.
Our meetings normally consist of a show-and-tell segment, where attendees show what they've been working on over the previous month, then a general discussion about issues and advice.
Our venue also happens to contain a fully-stocked workshop, so 3D printer issues can often be troubleshot and solved on the night!
Meetings are currently on hold for a few months. Keep an eye out though, as we'll be back in a couple of months!
