3D printing is one of the most popular technologies in our Makerspace, and our Solidoodle 3D printer typically has a small crowd gathered around it during our weekly Open House. We know many of you are hungry to learn about the technology, gain an understanding of how it works, and try it out for yourselves. To satisfy this demand, we are holding a 3D printing meetup and demonstration on June 27th at 7:00pm!
During the event Kevin Besig will be holding a 3D printing demonstration where he will introduce 3D printing, including:
- Describe how the technology fundamentally works.
- Demonstrate how plastic 3D printing technology works and operates.
- Discuss the potential of 3D printing and it's applications in the real world.
- Answer any questions you may have.
However this event is not just demonstration, it is also a meetup for all 3D printing enthusiasts in the Rochester and Western, NY area. If you have a 3D printer, please bring it and show it off, as well as any prints that you'd like to show off. This will be the first of many 3D printing events, and we plan on making these meetups a regular event.
We are excited about what 3D printing has to offer, both for the Rochester Makerspace and society at large. We hope you will join in our enthusiasm and look forward to meeting all of you at our event!
When & Where
The Rochester Makerspace is a nonprofit community workshop and art studio located near downtown at 850 St. Paul Street. We're here to encourage learning, creativity and collaboration by providing low-cost and free access to sophisticated tools, offering a wide variety of classes, and by providing opportunities for “makers,” artists and craftspersons of all kinds to meet and interact with each other.
In addition to the classes and events listed on this page we also invite to attend the following activities, which do not require registration or a ticket:
Every Thursday Night from 6 to 9:30 PM and Saturday Afternoon from 11am to 3pm- Weekly Community Open House.
You are invited to come and use the Rochester Makerspace for free. Bring something to make or work on, help with a group project, or just come to meet other "makers" and see what we have to offer. (Sorry, but nonmembers can not use our wood or machine shops because of insurance issues.)
Every Thursday Night from 6:30 until 9:00 PM - Rochester Stained Glass Meetup
Learn how to work with stained glass or bring a project to work on if you already know how. We have lots of tools and grinders and enough supplies to teach you the basics. We also usually have an instructor. Free.
Every Thursday Night from 7 until 9:30 PM - Microcontrollers & Robotics Meetup
Work on your Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone projects with other users of these small inexpensive computers. All skills level are welcome and you don't need to be a member. We'll help you by sharing our knowledge and experience.
A family membership currently costs $40 per month and it gives you access to these tools and other tools every day from 8 AM to 10 PM.
