There are 3D Hubs Events organized for every weeknight of this week, from San Francisco to Canada and from Milan, Italy to Bonn, Germany.
In fact, Friday night’s Bonn event is the first 3D Hubs meetup in the city, ever, whereas Toronto has been hosting 3D Hubs meetups a little longer (this will be #4) with plans to have one every second Tuesday on the month, each month of the year. Here’s what’s planned this week for 3D Hubs all over the world!
Monday night in San Francisco, 3D Hubs joined with Fusion 360 to put on a workshop on product design and 3D printing. This event comes on the heels of other successful workshop collaborations intended to introduce Fusion 360. You download Fusion 360 on your laptop, take it with you to the event, and learn how to design and then 3D print your own lampshade. This event was held on Market Street at Autodesk’s Gallery and organized by San Francisco’s 3D Hubs Community Mayor, Maddie Smith. If you missed this last night and you are in the Bay Area, you can rest assured there will be more similar events in months to come.
If you are in the Toronto area tonight, Peter, or “Dr. Makemake,” the 3D Hubs Community Mayor there, would like to see your face at the fourth 3D Hubs Pub Night. Yes, this is the fourth time people have gathered in Toronto to exchange information about 3D design and printing, and this group is serious about getting together. They’ve already committed to gathering every second Tuesday of every month: that’s twelve time a year. Right now there are 137 3D Hubs in Toronto — so there’s plenty of people to meet and plenty to discuss at Toronto’s monthly pub night. Oh. Yes. A few more details. People will be meeting at the Fox and Fiddle from 6:00-8:00 PM.
Calgary is right behind Toronto for hosting a meetup this week. The Minhas Microbrewery is the location for this meetup on Wednesday, October 14th, which is organized by Community Mayor Colin, and begins at 5:30 PM — right when you get off work. They also have a staging area, so you can bring your 3D printers or any projects you are working on. Currently, Calgary has 45 printers registered on the 3D Hubs network, so this sounds like a great opportunity to connect with folks and see what they are working on!
Francesco is the Community Mayor of 3D Hubs, Milan, Italy, and he’s excited to invite you to an upcoming 3D scanner party that introduces people to 3D scanning in a relaxed atmosphere. You will be introduced to scanning through Sketchfab, and also have a chance to scan your own mini-me, or other sentimental items! This event takes place Thursday,October 15, from 7:00 – 10:00 PM. If you didn’t already register, the event is sold out, but keep your eyes peeled for more events coming up like this in Milan.
Bonn, Germany is the location of our last 3D Hubs event for this week. This will be the first meetup for 3D Hubs, Bonn, and it’s happening on Friday, October 16, from 7:00- 10:00 PM. Community Mayor DruckWege encourages everyone interested in seeing live 3D printers work to attend. Also, if you’d like to see a bit more about DruckWege’s other projects, you can check this website out here (it’s in German) where he lists many of the things going on around Bonn that are tech-related.
