2015 has kicked off with a bang thanks to the efforts of our amazing Shapeways Crew members who have hosted 3D printing focused events all around the world! In their roles as 3D printing community leaders and ambassadors for Shapeways, Crew members have hosted workshops, exhibitions, a TedX talk, and meetups. I’m also exited to announce that Crew is nearly 60 members strong and we’ve recently welcomed Crew members from England, Germany, Australia, Finland, South Korea, as well as all over the United States!
Here’s the some of the highlights from our Crew members from the past two months:
An introduction to 3D printing at TedX Gijon in Spain by Mariel Diaz Castro. Shapeways printed keychains with the TedX Gijon logo;
A talk with employees of the digital agency Huge by Melissa Ng at the Shapeways LIC factory;
A 3D printing meetup in Singapore led by Ariel Lemon;
The ever inspiring Luk and Idoya of Somersault 18:24 presented about 3D printing to a group of students in Peers, Belgium. They also represented Shapeways last year at Biotech Day in Ghent, Belgium;
Finally, Tom Hanson, based in Columbus, Ohio has been attending the monthly 3D printer meet up at the Columbus Idea Foundry to talk about Shapeways and how a 3D printing service can augment what you can make with a desktop printer.
