Hello, after talking to Nick about Plastics SIG and all the research that was done into it while I was vice chair of 3D fab I offered to field all the questions and keep this SIG on track so it can become a committee soon, I want to help him keep this SIG compartmentalized so he can focus on machine shop stuff, He suggested I post here.
I asked NIck to talk to Stan and separate plastics from machine shops for now at least in the area of honorariums so member who are currently teaching can send some money into the coffers of Plastics so when we move and become a committee we will have lots of funds to start up. for now if you are a teacher and want honorarium funds to go to plastics just send oit to machine shop and let Nick know its meant for plastics.
I have started talks with a friend of mine who can possible let us use his roto caster, and we already have several member willing to donate simple machine tools for plastics.
I would like to use this thread as a sounding board for ideas and suggestions for Plastics and hopefully we can be up and running no long after to move.
