3D PrintShow London
A 3D printing showcase will be taking place this weekend at
The Brewery, EC1, one of the most fascinating things happening in art
and design at the moment and this is the first of its kind in Europe!
London’s first 3D Print Live Show arrives this weekend (Friday 19 Saturday 20 Sunday 21) to The Brewery EC1.
It will celebrate, teach, build and moralise about what can only be
described as the most exciting new industry to come from the UK in
London’s 3D Print show is Europe’s first platform for us, the public to
experience these exciting developmentsin 3D technology and as our
fascination in 3D printing reaches new dizzy heights, it’s no wonder
that tickets for most of the seminars and workshops for this pioneering
weekend are sold out.
3D Prints how will help us to discover and interact with the latest
technology including use of some of the worlds most advanced 3d
printers. Ticket holders can take part in a wide range of seminars,
workshops, live shows and there will be a display of 3D art in the on
site art gallery. The collaborator section will feature what could be
the weekend’s star attraction – a 3D printed hat created by Stephen
Jones, one of the world’s most celebrated milliners. Exclusively for 3D
Printshow, Stephen Jones has created his first 3D printed hat with the help of IPF 3DPrinting and Europac 3d.
Formlabs, a new US company founded by MIT graduates, (who succeeded in meeting their funding goalson Kickstarter
in an impressive 2 ½ hoursand have caused wavesof interest within the
3D community) will be exhibiting their technology, which claimsto be
“the first truly high-resolution, low-cost 3D printer for design
professionals” You can even buy one on Kickstarter now!
3D Printing has drawn intrigue from across the board, from trade and
public to fashion press and designers. Now it’s our turn to see what all
the fuss is about.
