Meet the Maker: Fabri-con

Fabri-con created by 3DDave at the start of 2013, Fbari-con is a group of people who own 3D printers or are interested in 3d printing. Every 3 month there is a meetup and the people bring their printers along to chat and show off their printers aswell as if there people who are having problems with their printer other members can help try and work out the bugs. Here are a few people that will be in Fabri-con demoing there printers and talking about what they do with them.
