In the US there’s nothing planned for 3D Hubs Events this coming week–probably because Americans will be busy stuffing themselves with holiday turkey and starting the month of festivities that is right around the corner. However, internationally, there will be 3D printing meetups and workshops. From Saudi Arabia to Costa Rica, from Australia to the Netherlands and South Africa, people will meet other 3D printing fans over beers and refreshments, learn more about 3D scanning, watch robots — and more! Check this impressive list of events from 3D Hubs out for an event near you. And don’t forget to sign up either, as spaces are filling up fast!
In the capital city of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh, there will be a 3D printing meetup on November 24 from 5:00-9:00 pm. This meetup will take place at the Badir Program for Technology Incubators, explains the Community mayor, Sarah, and it looks like it will be quite popular as there are only 10 spots left–after they added more to accommodate the demand! But don’t let that keep you from attending at meeting other people in the Riyadh community interested in 3D printing. Simply click on “Join Meetup,” and if you don’t get a follow-up email, then click on “Leave Meetup” and then “Join Meetup” again. If you have any questions, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also on November 24 will be a 3D Hubs sponsored Strong and Flexible event in San José, Costa Rica’s ToolTecIngineria. Here, you will get the chance to learn about Strong and Flexible material. You will also receive a $20 voucher towards a HD 3D Hubs print. Student tickets are running $5.00 and general tickets are $7.50, and there are still spots left. You can sign up on Eventbrite, and in addition to the voucher, refreshments and snacks will also be provided — explains San José 3D Hubs Community Mayor, Tamara.
I said that there was plenty happening 3D printing-related internationally this week, and I meant it. Next, we head to Sydney, Australia, for the monthly meetup of 3D printing fans. This meetup takes place on November 25 from 5:00-7:30 pm at Bilby3D. The Community Mayor, James, explains that this meetup is held on the last Wednesday of the month, always at the same time, too. Everyone is welcome, whether they have 3D printing experience or not, and you can even bring some of your own prints to share with the entire group!
Also on November 25, from 8:00 to 10:00 pm is a scanner party in Groningen, the Netherlands. This party will allow you to be able to scan objects or your own mini-me bust: all for the low price of €5.00. Located at Launch Cafe, Heerestraat 106, this event will include refreshments and snacks, and your design will also be published on Sketchfab. What better way to learn about 3D scanning, while having a good time and leaving with something to show for it, too?!
Our last event listed on this week’s calendar takes place in Johannesburg, South Africa, and it is a meetup for all of those interested in 3D printing. Community Mayor Rick invites you to attend the meetup on Thursday, November 26, from 6:00-10:00 pm, as he describes it, in “the heart of the Beast at Robobeast Offices in Northlands Business Park, Corner minis, Randburg.” The space will have a refrigerator, but attendees are asked to bring their own drink, including beer. Since the event is co-sponsored by Robobeast, you will be able to see robots in action at this meetup.
Don’t forget to sign up for any other these events that you are interested in attending, and have a fabulous week! Will you be attending any of these events? Let us know in the 3D Hubs Event Calendar forum thread on 3DPB.com.
