General Meeting on Wednesday - 8 April 2015
The St. Louis Unix Users Group (SLUUG) general meetings are usually on the second Wednesday of each month.

We start the general meeting with a basic session; which may include either simple tutorials, displays of newly discovered web sites, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, amazing graphical packages, major resolution of long standing anomalies, blinking lights, or quantum shifts in both time and space. Then we will have our usual quick welcome, introduction, administrative announcements, and a Questions and Answers Period. After all that, we take a break before our main event.

The basics portion will be on Mutt by Ken Johnson

Mutt is a text-based email client for Unix-like systems. It was originally written by Michael Elkins in 1995 and released under the GNU General Public License version 2 or any later version.

The mutt slogan is "All mail clients suck. This one just sucks less". See
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutt_%28e-mail_client%29

Our main event will be Introduction to 3D Printing by Scott Rocca, Griffin 3D

Learn about the process of 3D printing (also called "Additive Manufacturing") which is one of various processes used to make three-dimensional objects. We will also see demonstrations of the Griffin line of "Delta" 3D printers.

Scott is the co-founder and Mad Fabricator of Griffin 3D. After graduating from SIUE in 2011 with a degree in Theater Technology with an emphasis on Technical Direction. Scott then attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Fabrication Academy Program. MIT's Fab Academy program was an opportunity to work with laser cutters, CNC machines and 3D printers directly while learning to design and prototyp ideas. Learning to design for digital fabrication machines allowed him to help found Griffin 3D and create a line of 3D printers that are now being produced locally. Griffin 3D Printing is a St Louis startup, developing a line of Delta 3D printers as a Kickstarter project.
