The MESH Forum

Late last week, I installed a forum on our website. After a bit of customisation and testing it is ready for right prime time. The forum uses the popular open source phpBB software. Our committee have volunteered to be moderators.

The forum has several sub-forums, from the obligatory general discussion to links, tutorials, projects and more. The forum is open to all not just MESH members. Hopefully it will become a useful resource for makers the world over.

In other news, a big thank you to MESH member Ashley Hill for donating a partially complete 3D printer. It should be fun getting it working next meeting.

First Meeting at the New Space

Our first meeting at the new space at Swinburne Wantirna Campus was a great success, with our greatest turnout ever and the highest number of first-time visitors. One of the first timers, Chris Mitchell, is a photographer and he kindly shared his pictures with us.

Thanks for all the work from all our committee, Swinburne and Knox City Council to make all this possible, we all still have lots of work ahead of us. We need to clean up the courtyard, get and install 3D Printers and other equipment. The future is looking bright for MESH!
