From bleeding hearts to hearts of steel- we've got you covered!
The final stop on my Irish, British and Scottish roadshow was ancient Edinburgh. A city as cloaked in history as it is moss. Scotland is a lovely country, making up the Northern UK territory and producing some of the best Whisky in the world, it has always been high on my list of travel destinations. Full disclosure, the original impetus for this roadshow had been a wedding I was asked to officiate in Edinburgh, and given the success of the Shapie community there it made sense to combine work and play. After making some great memories with my old college community, I was excited to see how Scottish Shapies got inspired! I spent Monday with the esteemed Vijay Paul of Dotsan and the evening meeting up with Steven Gray, Chris Dobson and Michael Inglis, three other incredibly talented Shapies. Not sure if it was the gloomy weather or tasty spirits, but Scotland greatly impressed me with the magic of its design culture.
After an inspiring meetup in Galway it was time to head to Big Ben and meetup with the London Shapeways Community. It was overcast and slightly misting when I arrived, in typical British form. 15 Shapies (and even some of their family) met me at The Riverside, on the South Side of the River Thames.
It was a pleasant variety of Shapies, many of them designers and engineers by day. Entrepreneurs, amateurs and some venerable members of the 3D Printing community came out and shared stories and Shapeways models. Many of the designers, like the one by Terry Wu featured above, were focused on making complete collections and iterating to perfection! Here are some highlights:
The tech world collectively gasped and gossiped yesterday as Facebook announced its purchase of Oculus, a virtual reality headset originally launched on Kickstarter, for a cool $2 Billion Dollars. Safe to say that their 21 year old CEO and his team of are set for life, but what does this mean for the rest of us?
Top o' the mornin', Shapies! Have you been to the Emerald Isle or always yearned to go? After 3 days here in Galway, Ireland is quickly rising on my favorite travel destinations list. Beyond the gorgeous vistas, the people are unbelievably friendly!
There's a robust community of Shapies here in Ireland and last night I had the pleasure of meeting up with six Irish 3D modelers! Much of this crew understood the importance of prototyping, printing their models in WSF before opting for one of our nice metals. Two of them even had at home printers that they iterate on before uploading to Shapeways.
Savannah, Shapeways roaming gnome here, and I'm hitting the road again! This time, for #ShapewaysRoadtrip part two, I'll be in Galway, London and Edinburgh hosting meetups along the way. In addition to mingling, I am also looking to showcase designers who use Shapeways to power their businesses and enhance their lives. Send me an email, Savannah@Shapeways.com if you're interested in being featured (and comfortable being on camera). Now, for the details:
There might not be any more medals to give out in Sochi, but Shapeways is just getting started. We saw many great entries to the #ShapewaysOlympics contest and are proud to announce the winners!
This modular trophy by Corretta Singer from Jamaica! This accolade converts from a desktop display of accomplishment to a medal you can wear! Her clever design and showcasing of the Shapeways brand makes her this year's #ShapewaysOlympics gold medalist!
All Aboard, Savannah here, coming to you from the observation car of #AmtrakLIVE, the SXSW rail journey from Los Angeles to Austin, Texas. We are halfway through our 35 hour ride to the South by Southwest Interactive festival and guerrilla 3D Selfie scanning around town. The digital influencers aboard have been documenting the whole experience, including many of the designs by our Shop Owners! Special thanks to everyone who sent products along for the ride.
Long distance train travel is often forgotten about, but I can tell you after 17.5 hours on the Texas Eagle, it's worth remembering. We have a very vibrant model train community here on Shapeways and it's all the more clear to me now where the passion for locomotives comes from.
