If you would like to attend or host a Shapeways 3D Printing Meetup in you area take a look at Shapeways Meetups Everywhere to see if there is a group already in your area, if not, you can always start one to meet other designers, artists, architects, animators, engineers, students, makers and 3D Printing enthusiasts in your local area....
It runs Tuesday 7th August through Thursday 9th August and showcases the products, techniques, ideas and inspiration that are creating the next generations of computer graphics and interactive techniques.
We're excited to be on the West Coast again and we want to hang with Shapies in the area, as well as provide a way for you to meet each other so we're doing a pre-SIGGRAPH meetup on Monday the 6th August!
It seems there's a lot of Shapies on the other side of the river, so we're bringing the meetup to Brooklyn this time! Join us for beers and chats at Berry Park on N14th st and Berry near McCarren Park on Thursday July 19th from 6:30pm.
Show and tell was fun last month, so we're unveiling the Designer Soapbox! Bring your products and share your story in an informal bar setting. No projectors, just your voice! We're going to limit it to 4 designers at 5 minutes each so there will be plenty of time for questions and socializing.
Let me know if you'd like to speak by emailing natalia (@) shapeways.com
RSVP to join us on meetup.com and see you next Thursday!
For the 4th Minneapolis Shapeways Meetup, I'll walk you thru making a model in Sketchup that can be 3D Printed, upload it Shapeways, and choose a material for printing. This meetup coincides with a Sketchup meetup, which you can read more. The location is same as our previous Shapeways Minneapolis Meetups: The Mill, 2300 Kennedy Street NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413. Look for the green building at the end of the building complex at 2300 Kennedy St NE.
The organizer is Marcus Ritland aka Denali 3D Design, a freelance CAD designer specializing in making models for 3D printing.
