3DEA New York Fab Lab Talk, Saturday Dec 1st #3dthursday
This Saturday evening, the 3DEA Popup at the Eventi hotel will be inviting folks from a number of area fablab and makerspaces to share about the services and facilities they offer for makers interested in exploring 3D. Sign up here for this free talk:
Saturday December 1, hack out, print up, and go inside New York City’s fabrication revolution at the 3DEA Fab Lab. We’ve brought together cutting-edge innovators from the School of Visual Arts’ Fine Art and Visual Futures Labs, New York College of Technology, Parsons The New School For Design, Greenpoint-based Alpha One Labs, ModeLab, 3dx Max User Group and NYC Makery . Interested in 3D printing, scanning, haptic control, laser-cutting, wood milling and more? Hear from experts like Parsons’ Mo Shahadat, SVA’s Erik Guzman and Carlos Cruz, City Tech’s Brian Timothy Ringley. There’s no better place to meet likeminded inventors and makers and uncover what New York City schools and labs have to offer. Whether you’re interested in user experience and interfaces, the subtleties of Rhino, mechanical engineering or parametric modeling, we’ve got you covered.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has thrilled us at Adafruit with its passion and dedication to making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed that our community integrating electronics projects into 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you take considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless EL Wire and LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you have a cool project you’ve made that joins the traditions of 3D printing and electronics, be sure to send it in to be featured here!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
