On March 30, over 40 Shapeways members met in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Instead of at a bar (our usual meeting spot), we met at the ProtoSpace FabLab – a wonderful place filled with art, machines (laser cutters, CNC machines, Ultimaker printers and more!) and people who just love to make their own stuff.
We invited two well-known community members to give a short presentation about their work. Dario Scapitta showed us his amazing jewelry and how the new materials and production options inspire him. Michiel Cornelissen explained how his love for creating things dragged him away from his job at Philips Design and had him start his own company.
After that, the FabLab crowd and Shapeways members mingled, had a few drinks and had a good time.
