Fab11, looking back

Recommended Posts

August 2015, Boston, Massachusetts. It was time for the Ultimaker team to take another trip across the big pond and visit MIT in Boston. It was MIT from which the FabFoundation emerged as a non profit organization to support the growth of the international FabLab network.

 

Because of our roots (Ultimaker was born in a FabLab) we were invited to come and represent Ultimaker to these FabLabs, and represent not just us.. but one of the manufacturing methods the FabFoundation promotes to have a presence in the FabLabs. That is quite an honor.

Ultimaker hosted 3 workshops during the show, together with its community. We invited @RooieJoris (van Tubergen) and @Foehnsturm, and together we gave insight in how you could transform your Ultimaker into a paste extruder, how to use your Ultimaker to print unlimited in Z and how to convert your Ultimaker in a magnetic tool changer.

These workshops are documented and will be shared later, we are currently putting the footage together.

Follow this thread if you want to be kept up to date :)

If you want to read our blog covering the show, continue here.

Enjoy! :)

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
