Reverse Space – Build, Create, Collaborate.
“3D Printing Meet-up – Bring your 3D printer - Laser & Full Color Printing.”
This week Reverse Space will be hosting a 3D printer monthly meet-up. Feel free to bring your 3D printer to show it to the 3D printing community, learn from others in the community building their own printers, or just visit to learn about the rapidly expanding field of 3D printing. -
Reverse Space will also be operating two advanced 3D printers. A full color powder 3D printer from a company called Zcorp, and an ultra high resolution laser 3D printer from another company called Form1. The meeting will start at 6:00pm and the space will be open from 5:30pm to 11pm.
6PM to 7PM - “Laser 3D Printing”
We will be printing an object on our ultra high resolution 3D printer called the FORM1. This amazing 3D printer uses stereo-lithography, a photo-polymer liquid, and a Blu-Ray laser to print small features which would be almost impossible to print on a standard MakerBot or similar tabletop 3D printer. Before the FORM1, a Makerspace or company would have to buy a $60,000 3D printer to be able to print with clear plastic resin and with ultra high resolution and accuracy.
7PM to 8PM - “Zcorp Powder 3D Printing.”
This week Reverse Space we will be operating our Zcorp (www.zcorp.com) 3D powder printer. We have received multiple requests to use the printer for the production of designs. If you don’t have anything to print, feel free to come by and see the entire process. This includes printing, removal of the printed item from the powder, processing the item, and the infiltration process to harden the items printed. For more information on color 3D printing, www.youtube.com has a great selections of video under the search keyword of “zcorp.”

This week we will also have the standard Thursday Makerspace meeting. If you would like a tour of the Makerspace, please come between 5:30pm to 6:00pm for a tour. ReverseSpace is open to new people every Thursday.
5:30pm to 11PM – Space is open to everyone and their projects.
6:00PM to 7:00pm – Form1 Laser 3D printing.
7:00PM to 8:00pm – Zcorp Full Color Powerder 3D Printing.
If you have any projects you are working on, feel free to bring it to Reverse Space! We have locked storage space, hundred of tools and electronics, and the largest sections of free to use 3D printers for any Makerspace (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hackerspace) on the east coast of the US. At this time membership is free.
