Mabee Library at MidAmerica Nazarene University

2030 E. College Way , Olathe, KS (map)

  • We will be in the main public space on the 1st floor.
  • In following with the KCOHG's continued mission of Open Source awareness and education we are proud to announce our first meetup in partnership with Mabee Library at MidAmerica Nazarene University. 

    This casual event will be focused on 3D printing technology along side demonstations of members prints, printers and designs. 

    3D Printing, also known as Additive Manufacturing, is an exciting technology that has dramatically altered the way products are designed, manufactured, distributed and financed. It all begins with a standard digital file (.stl) of an object, created by either Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software of some sort or a 3D scanner, which is then processed by “slicing” the design into G-Code which when understood by the machine builds the object layer-upon-layer in a material such as plastic, metal or ceramic. 

    As a group KCOHG provides a forum for members and the community, to discuss various types of Open Source Hardware, with events such as this one centered around a primary technology or build to increase awareness, socialize and most importantly learn how Open Source technology will touch everyone lives. 

    If you need help getting your new printer dialed in, learn more about how to design 3d objects, or just to meet other like minded people, we look forward to seeing you !

    The simplest way we've found is
    • 143rd ST going West until Lindenwood Drive
    • Turn RIGHT on Lindenwood Drive
    • Follow the road past two parking lit entrances.
    • Make a RIGHT turn at the third parking lot, and follow it EAST (straight), it should enter a second lot on the South East corner. (You will pass the Cook Center on your right and living area on the left).
    • Follow this parking lot to the far end (South East) and park. The library should be directly in front of you.
