New Polling Feature Needs You!

There is a new feature on the APMM website. We have a monthly poll question to help us gather data about our members. This month’s poll concerns the upcoming APMM Seattle 2020 Conference. Please take a look and give us your answer!

Did you know that we run a monthly poll? You might be asking yourself, why would the APMM run polls? Well, the answer is simple. 

By running polls, we can ask our members directly how they feel about a certain technique, product, machine, CAD, CAM, Slicer, or other computer applications, and whatever else makes a difference in their daily lives as model makers.  

Finding the poll question is relatively simple. Once you log into the APMM site, select any title from any of the horizontal pull down menus at the top of the page (with the exception of the Home Page). Scroll down to the bottom of that page and you’ll see the poll question. For example, hover your cursor over About and select Our Vision. Scroll down towards the bottom and you’ll see the Poll Question on the right side. 

We will be changing the question each month, so make sure to stay up to speed. Currently there is a question pertaining to the upcoming 2020 APMM Seattle Conference. Wait, what? We’re going to Seattle? Yes, we are. You read it here first. 

There are many APMM members who use Rhino as one of their CAD tools. McNeel, who publishes Rhino, is in Seattle. They have offered to host those who are interested for an advanced training day on the last day of the conference, which would be a Monday. Rhino is currently on Version 6. The WIP or Work In Progress for Version 7 has been released. I do not know the release date but it will be timely by the time we hit Seattle. 

Typically the APMM will schedule tours for Friday and Monday of the conference. For next year, we’re looking at adding the option of an all-day advanced training session at McNeel on Rhino, Grasshopper, and other McNeel products as they relate to Rhino.  McNeel has also offered to have developers on hand to discuss current and future features within their software offerings. There will be a charge for this session but this is no different than being charged for the tours.

This month’s question looks to find out how many of you might be interested in taking the Rhino session instead of a tour. Please take a look and give us your answer. Thanks!
