Jan MakeIt NYC: NYC3D! 3D Printing for Design and Prototyping #makerbusiness
Don’t forget to RSVP for upcoming Jan Meetup for MakeIt NYC:
MakeIt NYC is proud to present two NYC-based leaders of 3D Printing, Shapeways and Solidoodle, to discuss how using a 3D Print service, or owning your own 3D Printer aids the Maker’s design and prototyping process. Both will be showing their respective stuff, so members can truly go hands-on with 3D Printing. And we’ll have two members discussing how they’re walking the 3D walk. We’re joined by Aaron Trocola of 40WestID, who’s creating custom products with 3D printing and scanning. Also presenting is Karl Biewald of AXN|RXN Engineering, who’ll be showing his “Wizard Clip”, a really fun item that was quickly designed and iterated using SolidWorks and 3D Printing, and headed to Kickstarter. All this plus a drawing for over $1000 in conference tickets, pizza and more.

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
