There are three 3D Hubs events this week happening outside the US — reminding us that the international community embraces 3D printing as much as we do Stateside. You can attend these lively events if you live in or near Toronto, Canada; Århus, Denmark; or Zagreb, Croatia. In Toronto, people will be gathering for the monthly pub night, in Århus, people will be attending a 3D Hubs open house, and finally, in Zagreb will be 3D Print Show Sisak. Toronto reports 150 3D Hubs, rivaling San Francisco, at this point. There are plenty of reasons to get out there and take advantage of all the opportunities that the 3D Hubs’ Community Mayors are organizing. Enjoy!
On November 10, 2015 from 6:30-8:30 PM Toronto 3D Hubs will host its fifth pub night at the Fox and Fiddle, York Mills. Community Mayor Peter, also known as “Dr. Make Make,” is inviting all people interested in 3D printing to come out and share printing experience, discuss new equipment and supplies, and do some networking too. Toronto has 150 3D Hubs (!) so there are sure to be some new faces that you could benefit from familiarizing yourself with if you are into or interested in 3D printing. According to Peter, another reason to come out is that Toronto’s high ranking worldwide for 3D Hubs–we just saw that Toronto overtook San Francisco for the #9 slot in November. So, if you want to help strengthen Toronto’s place in the international 3D printing circles, head on out to Fox and Fiddle. Or better yet, if you sponsor the first round of appetizers, you can get the opportunity to give your 3D printing peers a 10-15 minute informative talk.
In Århus, Denmark, you are invited to an open house of the 3D Hubs space. This takes place on November 12 from 4:00-8:00 PM. According to Roman, the Community Mayor, people will be displaying wild prints and sharing experiences. The space may also open up to two other Hubs so that a larger group will be available to ask and answer questions, share tips, and compare equipment. Sounds like fun to me!
Fran, the Community Mayor of Zagreb, Croatia’s 3D Hubs invited you to attend a 3D Print Show with a focus on Applied Ceramics. (See above flyer for all of the details in Croatian.) The show takes place on November 14 from 10:00-2:00 PM and includes speakers, 3D printing demonstrations, and a 3D printed model display with a focus on Applied Ceramics. If you are near Zagreb and just want to experience a bit more about 3D printing, or if you are a die-hard enthusiast of the technology already, you can check the show out on Friday. You can see the Facebook event page and forum thread detailing the show, as well.
