If you’re a 3D printing enthusiast looking to get out, socialize and learn this week, 3D Hubs has plenty to keep you busy both here in the States and all over the world. From discussions of 3D printing in education and industry to a 3D printing for beginners talk, there’s something for everyone at every level of involvement in this week’s 3D Hubs Events.
From 2:00 to 4:00 PM today, November 18, you’re invited to come learn about the ubiquitous Strong & Flexible 3D printing material at BrainStation Vancouver. You’ll learn about its many applications and how to design for them. Patrick Wirt, Director of Sales and Marketing for Corbel 3D, will be the guest speaker. Tickets are $7.50, and all tickets will include a $20 voucher for a high definition Strong & Flexible print from 3D Hubs HD.
This free event takes place at SPARK Campus in Rosmalen from 7:00 to 9:00 PM today, the 18. Teachers, students, and parents are invited to get together to discuss the possibilities that 3D printing offers in education. Frank Ulijn will host, and two presentations will be given by local experts in 3D printing and education.
From 6:30 to 8:00 PM on November 19, the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) will host an event dedicated to the discussion of 3D printing’s impact on industry, and how the technology can be applied to product design and development. Jim Nikkel, a Research Associate with SAIT’s Sports and Wellness Engineering Technologies research group, will speak about how the group applies 3D printing and other manufacturing techniques to product design, testing and analysis. The event will take place in the Technology Demonstration Theatre, in the college’s Aldred Centre.
On the third Thursday of every month, Lay3rs Eindhoven hosts a 3D printing event. This month’s event, taking place November 19 from 7:00 to 10:00 PM, will welcome representatives from Builder 3D Printers, who will introduce the new Premium family of printers and answer any questions. Before the event starts, you’re welcome to come hang out and eat pizza from 6:00 to 7:00.
It’s all about Strong & Flexible this week. Like the Vancouver event, this Salt Lake City gathering will focus on the plastic material and its design capabilities.

The event will take place from 6:00 to 8:00 PM on November 20 at 6526 S. State Street.
It’s back to basics in Virginia Beach! If you’re curious about 3D printing but have never tried it, or if you’re experienced but just want to have some food and drinks while hearing what other people have to say about it, you’re invited to come hang out at Panera Bread from 3:00 to 5:00 PM on November 21. A printer will be on display, as well as some 3D printed objects, and there may be a live demo.
Two 3D Hubs Events already happened this week: 3D Druck Community Treffen Graz in Graz, Austria, and Café3D: A impressão 3D na indústria in São Carlos, Brazil. Both events took place on November 17 and were well-attended. It’s been a busy week for 3D Hubs; if you’re in the area for any of them, stop on by, and don’t forget to check back for the next event in your hometown.
