Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo – April 22-23 in New York City #3dthursday
For those fascinated by the world of 3D printing and the industry that exists and is continuing to invent itself around this field, check out the upcoming Inside 3D Printing conference in New York City:
Join us at our conference, Inside 3D Printing, on April 22-23 in New York City. Inside 3D Printing consists of two full days of tutorials and conference sessions, as well as an exhibition of 3D printing applications and services. A companion west coast conference will take place at the Santa Clara Convention Center on September 24-26, 2013.
Renowned expert Dr. Hod Lipson of Cornell University will serve as the program chair of the inaugural event.
The April 23 morning keynote is Terry Wohlers, Principal Consultant and President, Wohlers Associates, Inc. Wohlers has been named as one of the most influential individuals in rapid product development and additive manufacturing.
The April 23 afternoon keynote is Peter Weijmarshausen, CEO and Co-Founder of Shapeways. He is recognized as a global expert on 3D printing, entrepreneurship, internet marketing, and business development.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you 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 LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
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’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it 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.
