While many people in the US are preparing Halloween costumes, internationally, there are many 3D printing events sponsored by 3D Hubs. Upcoming events include: a Meetup in Prague, a 3D printing workshop focused on designers and architects in London, a Meetup in Raleigh, North Carolina at Wake Forest Technical College, and another free event to introduce Strong & Flexible SLS 3D printing in Calcutta, India which is one of the first 3D printing hubs in all of India!
On October 26 from 6:00-10:00 pm, there will be a 3D printing meetup organized by Community Mayor Tomas. Tomas suggests that the meetup is both for the uninitiated and the initiated in the local Prague 3D printing community. Whether you have a 3D printer and want to get involved in the networking of 3D Hubs, or just want to dip your toes in the water and see how the tech works, “3D Meetup will discuss how to get things started,” says Tomas.
So if you are just interested in finding out more about the technology or how the network works — the meetup at Prague MakersLab is a great way to check things out!
Next we go to London’s Proud Archivist where 3D Hubs is sponsoring a workshop geared to focusing on how techies, architects and designers use 3D printing in their work. The event includes an “outstanding line-up of speakers showing cutting edge 3D printing applications used for their designs” — according to the event description. Speakers architect, artist and researcher Alisa Andrasek — founder of Biothing and a partner of Bloom Games.
Assa Ashuach will also be speaking at the event. Ashuach’s work has been hosted at London Design Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum, and the Science Museum, amongst others. He has been working with 3D printing since 2004 and is founder of two 3D printing software companies: Digital Forming and Ucodo.
The event is Wednesday, October 28, 2015 from 7:00-9:00 pm with speakers beginning at 8:00 pm. If you purchase a $5.00 ticket here, you also get a 30% discount on 3D Hubs high definition prints!
Besides being Halloween, if you aren’t going trick or treating on October 31, 2015, and you live in or near Raleigh, North Carolina, you can check out the 3D Hubs Fall Meetup taking place at Wake Technical Community College from 10:00 am-2:00 pm. Presentations include one by a local business that will talk about how 3D printing has impacted their occupation. There will also be a 3D scanning demonstration sponsored by Richmond County Schools, and there will even be time to discuss what your 3D Hub service can provide to customers.
About 40 people attended the last meetup in July and, according to Community Mayor Bob, “Now that school is back in session we can expect a much larger audience that is very interested in learning about 3D printing,” so plan accordingly!
The last 3D Hubs event for the coming week also takes place on Halloween, October 31, from 4:00-7:00 pm in Calcutta, India. This free event will include a Question and Answer session, a Strong & Flexible SLS 3D printing workshop, and you will also get 30% of your next Strong & Flexible 3D print.
Organized by Community Mayor Sumant, the Calcutta 3D Hubs is one of the first such hubs in all of India! Will you be attending any of this week’s events? Let us know in the 3D Hubs Event Calendar forum thread on 3DPB.com.
