DFM Summit 2013 @ Dumbo Spot, Brooklyn, New York #3dthursday
Check out the Design for Manufacturing Summit event at the Dumbo Spot in Brooklyn later today. I will be one of the speakers on Panel 2 from 4:40pm-5:20pm talking along with Aaron Trocola, Sara Sigel, Kevin LeBlanc, and Moderator Arthur Young-Spivey about the changing world of 3D scanning and modeling. Still a few tickets left!
The Design for Manufacturing Summit brings together industrial designers, digital entrepreneurs and manufacturers to explore the opportunities in the digital manufacturing revolution.
Technological and cultural change offers the promise of shortened lines between all parts in the product development lifecycle, making manufacturing leaner, greener, more competitive and more profitable.
In panels and keynotes the DFM Summits cover topics like parametric CAD/CAM, DFM/DFx, 3D printing, lean manufacturing, new materials, open source hardware and the fast growing maker scene.
The semi-annual Design for Manufacturing Summits are the first part of the broader Design for Manufacturing Forum, a Modified Ventures project.
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!

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.
