At Shapeways we are very interested in the process of product design and how designers are inspired to create, refine, iterate and perfect new products and ideas harnessing the power of 3D printing and the Shapeways community. With the recent release of Beta Products and First to Try we are excited to give Shapeways designers the opportunity to invite fans and friends into their product design process.
To further investigate the process of product design, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Quirky for an evening of networking and sharing ideas and inspiration with other designers, inventors and makers. Join us on Tuesday, August 19 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Quirky’s New York City headquarters. You can find more information and RSVP on our meetup page.
The evening will feature a panel discussion highlighting how designers conceptualize products and their process of moving from idea to prototype. Shapeways shopowners Lucas Goossens, of LucasPlus designs, and Susan Taing, founder of bhold, and Quirky inventors “You Can Call Me Phil” and “Vector.” Following the panel discussion, participants can enjoy a demonstration of 3D printing a product prototype and practice their product pitch with others in interactive breakout groups. Light refreshments will be served.
We look forward to seeing you there!
