Hi again.

I just want to inform you I've created the wiki page about 3D Printing
in Fedora: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/3D_Printing

Feel free to add anything there, review a package or help by testing.

Happy new year.

> Hi,
> I am involved in a student group on FIT of Czech Technical University in
> Prague - in that group, we focus on 3D printing (RepRap).
> 3D printing needs a set of software on a control PC, such as some kind
> of 3D modeller (we're currently using OpenSCAD), a slicer (to convert a
> 3D model to set of instructions for the printer, we're currently using
> skeinforge and/or Slic3r) and printer interface software (currently
> Printrun).
> Installing this basic set of tools on a Linux machine is painful,
> they aren't usually available in repositories, compiling them includes
> compiling a bunch of dependencies and we usually end up using binary
> executables from a tar or git cloning plenty of python scripts. Desktop
> files and menu entries -> you don't get what you don't create
> yourself.
> I am currently working on adding this software to Fedora:
> https://github.com/hroncok/SPECS/
> But that is not where I want to stop. I'd like to create a Fedora RepRap
> spin and make Fedora the best choice for 3D print guys.
> At this point, I would like to gather people interested in 3D printing
> and eventually create a 3D printing SIG.
> Would anyone be interested and help me?
