'NOT 3DPrinting' - less hyped but exciting maker technologies

Here at Makers' Guild we love 3D Printing BUT.... we think it's fair to say it is more than a little over hyped at the moment. At 'NOT 3DPrinting' we will take a look at some alternative fabrication technologies and processes and have discussions about their application, possibilities, social and economic ramifciations etc.

First confirmed speaker is Gregory Epps of Robofold (Big orange robots bending sheet metal into stunning forms is a little more exciting than a little box squirting plastic, heh?) He will talk a bit about Robofold's activities, history, ambitions etc and maybe contextualise Robofold within other maker technologies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next up is Jamie Elliot of JAILmake is a 3d design studio based in South London who research, design, make, test, install and do everything else that happens in between.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jamie is passionate about making and matching challenges with creative design solutions. He will be talking making with the innovative use of traditional maker technologies and the possible fusion with Computer Aided Manufacturing systems. Even possibly suggesting you could (miss?)use a 3DPrinter for lost mould metal casting. JailMAKE and Makers' Guild will also be announcing an exciting hands on making event for people to use big 'real' machines to cut and join metal and wood and stuff!

We could maybe slot in one more speaker so please give us some suggestions. Maybe interesting uses of the ever popular and practical laser cutter, CNC, Biohacking, ??

Also please do bring stuff you make along to show to others on the night. Even if it is 3DPrinted ;) We will make sure there is more time for chat and networking this time.

Makers' Guild brings makers together to collaborate, share knowledge and form a community for lobbying, educating and growing together.
