This week’s 3D Hubs events reveal that people are getting more and more creative about event locations. The week kicks off in Graz, Austria with the Community’s regularly scheduled meetup at Makerspace Graz. In Den Bosch, the Netherlands, people will gather to focus specifically on 3D design and drawing, and in Eindhoven people interested in 3D printing will visit the G3nesis-3D company and check out the Zortrax 3D printers and the Fuel3D scanner on-site. 3D Drinks Calgary is meeting at a sports bar, where people will also be able to display their 3D printers and projects, and the last event of the week is in Charlotte, North Carolina at a historic gold mine! If you live in or near these locations, you can find out more about events below.
This week’s 3D Hubs events kicks off with another meetup for the Graz Community held on January 19th from 6:00-9:00 PM at Makerspace Graz. According to the Community Mayor, Thomas, this event happens every third Tuesday of the month and it will address internal issues for the group, such as planning group excursions, working on themes, and creating a Wiki for the group to use. As always, the meeting will include snacks and refreshments, and you can find out any more necessary information from the event page or by contacting Thomas with your questions.
This event is intended for anyone interested in 3D design or printing, regardless if they have any experience with the technology or not. On Wednesday, January 20th from 7:00-9:30 PM, join Community Mayor Frank for a gathering that will focus specifically on 3D design and drawing. This will include a review of design programs, so participants are asked to bring their laptops, and you can also plan ahead to bring your own 3D printer. Louis van den Heuvel will be on hand to talk about the development of the FabLab, and this will also be an opportunity to toast in the New Year!
This meetup, which is scheduled for the third Thursday of each month, will involve a visit to the G3nesis-3D company on January 21st from 7:00-10:00 PM. The meeting will introduce the company, cover high-resolution scanning with a Fuel3D scanner, provide a mini workshop on 3D modelling, and also look at the Zortrax 3D printer special and z- filaments. Community Mayor Albert invites you to join him for this informative event that will include drinks at the end of the evening, too! Are you planning on attending one of these events? Tell us about it in the 3D Hubs Events forum over at 3DPB.com.
It’s time again for another 3D Drinks gathering for the folks in and near Calgary. Community Mayor Colin invites everyone interested in 3D printing to attend the event, which will take place at Schanks Sports Grill South on January 21st from 7:00-9:00 PM. You can bring your printers and any other projects you’d like to share with the group, and there will be a staging area set up for this display. The Grill also features an arcade, mini and virtual golf, and pool, so there will be plenty of activities, both 3D printing and non 3D printing related! Sounds like a fun-filled way to network with like-minded people!
This event on January 23rd from 10:30 AM-2:00 PM at the Reed Gold Mine covers many 3D printing related topics including a 3D printing market overview by Makeshaper. Also, a North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources staff member will explain how engineering technology was used to build this historic gold mine, and there will also be an area where you can set up your 3D printer. Interested in bringing your own printer to the gold mine? You simply have to notify Community Mayor Bob of your intention to do this, and bring an extra power strip or extension cord. Charlotte’s 3D Hubs folks wants to show you how to spin gold from filament!
