74 people went


Our next event will be themed around the cutting edge for at home 3D printing and what the next step could be in this area.

This event looks at the final frontier of digital manufacturing which is home manufacturing. We will be asking the poignant question will anyone be able to have their own miniature factory in their home tomorrow? Will you be able to print of plates for the extra dinner guest, or the annoying spare widget for your washing machine that would take the repair man months to source or is such technology beyond even tomorrow?

The event will be very hands on with a mixture of talks and demonstrations. There will also be plenty of food, drinks and networking!

• Replicator Warehouse ( will be talking about their work and giving live demonstrations!
