091labs Event - 3D printing Workshop

Hi, My name is Ciaran. I am a member of Galways Hackerspace 091labs and I am launching my first start up 3D printing and Calibration company.  I will be running a 3D printer instruction day next Saturday (13.04.2013) between 9am and 6pm during our April Open Day. You can come by at any time and i can give you a 30 minute walk through on starting up, loading a file and printing an image.

3D Printing (also known as Additive Manufacturing) is a process which takes a 3D image and layers of plastics on top of each other to form a 3D model. These process is different to nearly all molding processes now a days which is used for mass production. 3D printing has applications for artists who require sculptures or models, modellers, rapid prototyping for start ups and rapid replacement and repair parts

Cost for the workshop is €10 event with all proceeds used to get loads more filament in different colours and types (we need ABS and PLA plastics) and cover repair costs for the second 3D printer and CNC milling machine. You get a free Android toy to take away and I'll help you with a second print down the line if you need anything big or fancy! 

Our event is available to view HERE
Thank you and i hope to see you on Saturday
