Next week is a rocking week for DIY geeks in Philadelphia. There’s not one, but TWO different 3D printing workshops happening right here in Philly. These machines are the little brothers of professional 3d printers, and using one you can print out, as 3d objects, pretty much anything you dream of. If you want a little 3D copy of your own WOW character on your desk, or a Stormtrooper helmet to keep pencils in (or anything) stop on by one of these workshops, and make something!
Fab@Home 3D printing workshops
Fab@Home creator, Evan Malone will give a workshop on 3D Printing and 3D Modeling for the Fab@Home Fabber. Attendees will be able to work hands-on with the Fab@Home machine. The workshop is Wednesday, June 17 from 6 to 8PM at Klein Art Gallery (3600 Marrket St. Philadelphia, PA). Please RSVP to the Klein Art Gallery (via facebook) as space is limited.
MakerBot 3D printing workshops
The MakerBot workshop is happening at Hive 76 and is starring MakerBot founder Zack Hoeken. The class is Saturday June 20th, from 1PM to 5PM at Hive 76 ( 915 Spring Garden, Suite 500, Philadelphia PA). You just need to show up on time, and with a laptop, and we do the rest. We’ll teach you everything you need to do a first design, and a first printing using the MakerBot. Tickets for the 4 hours class are $25 (or $5 for students).
