Ultimaker Session 27th of March | Exoskeleton 'Project March'

Recommended Posts

The next Ultimaker Session is around the corner. Time to reveal what we will gather around for this time...

If you are interested in 3D printing you must have heard of e-nable by now. It's like that kid in the classroom that everyone likes. And that kid is about to get a new best friend.  

We can leave it up to the ‘Technische Universiteit Delft’ (TU Delft) to amaze us with this fantastic project. ‘Project March’ is the name it goes by, and the team behind it is developing a sporty exoskeleton to take part in competitions and contribute to the development of this technology. One of their goals is to finish the Cybathlon 2017 track under 10 minutes, which is a real challenge.  

Project March also uses Ultimaker 3D printers to prototype parts of their exoskeleton. They have agreed to visit this Ultimaker Session and will bring a couple of prototype parts of their exoskeleton that they have 3D printed and tell us more about their developments.

If you want to know more about how an exoskeleton works, where that technology is headed or want to learn more about prototyping with a 3D printer in general? Make sure to stop by!

Unfortunately I just heard 'Project March' won't be able to bring the entire exoskeleton. They have promised to bring some very interesting examples of what they made with them, so I am excited to see what it will be!

We are looking forward seeing you on Protospace's new location! This location has no carpark of its own, but there are two (paid) parking spaces nearby you can use: parking garage Cambridgelaan and parking lot Padualaan.

We parked at the Padualaan last time, which was only a 4 minutes walk from Protospace. The entrance to the parking lot is easily missed though. I have marked it with the blue dot at the Leuvenlaan.

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
