proto33D Hubs is growing and changing how 3D printing fans meet and make things. This includes sponsoring events that bring the 3D printing community together to learn specific practices in 3D printing. These practices can be somewhat difficult to learn for some people, which is why 3D Hubs has chosen to sponsor workshops on various aspects of 3D printing, like recent events in France and Canada.

Take filament, for example. 3D Hubs has partnered with Proto-pasta to offer three workshops addressing the use of new filaments; one of these workshops has already been held in New York City and the other two are coming up in Boston and Amsterdam. Usually limited to a maximum of 30 people, the price includes some extra filament and refreshments as well!

August 8: Filament Workshop at Fab11’s FabFest| Boston, MA

This coming weekend, Boston will play host to a free maker festival celebrating creativity and encouraging the maker spirit in us all. The original site of the first Fab Fest eleven years ago, the festival returns “home” after sponsoring more than 500 Fab labs worldwide. This years’s fest will be located at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center in Roxbury Crossing, and the festival will include workshops, live performances, hands-on activities, demonstrations and exhibitions. Also, panel discussions featuring Boston-area (and beyond) makers and innovators will be happening at the festival, too.

proto2At the Fab Fest, 3DHubs will be partnering with filament manufacturer Proto-pasta to bring festival attendees an opportunity to attend a workshop showcasing best practices when using Proto-pasta’s Stainless Steel Filament (150g) and Carbon Fibre Filament (150g).

According to 3D Hubs’ Nikki Finnemore, this is one of three such workshops and the one held in New York City was a great success:

“The New York workshop, which sold out within days, was great fun. An intimate group of 30 of us gathered to work through best practices of using the special filament. The enthusiastic follow up from attendees sharing their prints on our Talk forum was great affirmation of a successful workshop.”

This Boston workshop is kind of a last-minute addition to the Fab Fest schedule, and tickets are still available. You can sign up for the event–which takes place on Saturday, August 8 from 12:00 to 2:00 EST and is led by 3D Hubs’ Adam Proctor–here. Happy Printing!
