Formlabs & Shapeways Beer&Pizza Happy Hour

On August 6th our team is travelling to Boston to host a Meetup during FAB11. And this is not just any meetup. No, we're thrilled to be partnering again with our friends from Formlabs! We've co-hosted meetups together in the past, but this time Formlabs will open their impressive headquarters for us all.

We know a lot of creative makers and members of makerspaces will be in Boston to attend FAB11 and we hope to give a good addition to the event schedule.

Shapeways Community Manager Andrew will give a small presentation about our recently released CustomMaker, also our IP Counsel Michael will be there. Rumour has it that a lot of the Formlabs staff will stick around after work, so expect it's going to be busy! Make sure to RSVP so we know to expect you.

If you've made products via Shapeways or with a Formlabs printer, be sure to bring your 3D Prints and share the story behind them!

    I went, but it was a mad house. Not very friendly but overall... it was a company party. But its ok, didn't have pizza or beer. Was not for me.

      It was correctly advertised. I found beer, pizza, and end of work week/conference day happiness.

      I had conversations with fab11, form, and shapeways, and digital fab area folks.

      I would agree it was dominated by fab11 cliques, but I expected no less.

      After the event I actually took some New Zealand folks over to Artisan's Asylum for a private after hours tour of facilities.

      "it felt like a Formlabs employees and their friends hangout." <- I was welcomed into a couple conversations with Formlabs employees talking with shapeways and fab folks, but you have to know how to do it, and I agree it can be awkward ...

    Thank you to formlabs and shapeways for organizing this event. I missed the beginning, but it was nice stopping by to chat with some folks about digital fab among other things.

    I don't know why Eric didn't like it. I loved it and had fund chatting about 3dp.
