Ponoko / Techshop Mixer - SF Design Week 2011
Wednesday, June 15, 2011 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Staff from both services will be on hand to answer your questions and discuss your ideas and projects.
The team from Ponoko will have examples of product designs made through their service via 3D printing, CNC routing and laser-cutting.
There will be tours of TechShop's facility each hour on the hour.
With free drinks, giveaways and American SF on hand with gourmet grilled cheese samwiches, this is the perfect introduction to these two revolutionary making services.
Ponoko's Personal Factory 5 enables you to make and sell products made via 3D printing, CNC routing and laser-cutting - using an ever growing catalog of materials and electronic components. They have also recently launched The Personal Factory App Gateway - allowing the creation of product design and customization tools without having to set up manufacturing and distribution channels.
TechShop is a membership-based workshop that provides members with access to tools and equipment, instruction, and a community of creative and supportive people so they can build the things they have always wanted to make. You can think of TechShop like a fitness club, but with tools and equipment instead of exercise equipment. It is sort of like a Kinko's for makers, or a Xerox PARC for the rest of us.
