I'm hosting a HeatSync 3d Design Night (Meetup page). We are gathering 3d design experts and those learning 3d design. Starting off we will have some short presentations on different 3d design tools. Then we will break up and have the experts help those that are working on designs. Wrapping up we will get a few people to share their designs and what they've learned.
There are people coming who know AutoCAD Inventor, Solid Works, Blender, OpenSCAD, Maya and more.
