Hi, I'm Meaghan.
1 & 2. I work in gov't, living between Vancouver, Ottawa and Hamilton.
3. John Biehler, a friend of mine in Vancouver got me into 3d printing several years ago. Had a lot of fun on my own previous to that with Arduino and Pi as well.
Right now working/thinking a lot about portable scanner design and testing different filaments as we work to improve the AFO devices a couple of my friends need to wear (but hate, because they are uncomfortable). Also interested in making some high temp kiln furniture for scientific purposes and upping my involvement with the e-Nableing The Future project.
4. Own/have built: SeeMeCNC Rostock (current favourite), an early ORD (just backed the RoVa3D, same as Marcel), couple of RepRaps and a mUVe (DLP printer). Have heard many great things about the Felix printers, but haven't yet played with one.
Very pleased to "meet" everyone!
