This year, NextFab is hosting the kick-off event of the Philadelphia Science Festival, a ten-day, community-wide celebration of science that takes place annually in April, featuring lectures, debates, hands-on activities, special exhibitions and a variety of other informal science education experiences for Philadelphians of all ages.
Close your eyes and imagine a science wonderland, with hands-on activities just for adults. Kick-off the 2013 festival with live science shows and demonstrations all tailored to adults. Check out NextFab's laser cutters and 3-D printers, breathe smoke like a dragon, and make cocktails out of specialty paper. Be there as Yards taps the official festival beer!
The tools required to design and prototype unique new products are friendlier and more accessible than ever before, so don't wait for others to turn your great idea into the next big thing.
In a step-by-step case study with live demonstrations, NextFab will show you how CAD, 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC machining, and Arduino microcontrollers are combined to make a complete personalized urban lifestyle product.
This event is a part of Philly Tech Week 2013, a week-long celebration of technology and innovation in Philadelphia. The annual week of events is intended to grow the impact of this innovative region through programming focused on technology, collaboration and improving Philadelphia.
A ShopBot is an amazing do-all tool for precisely cutting, carving, drilling or machining all kinds of things from all kinds of materials such as wood, plastics, aluminum and more. At NextFab, we do have a ShopBot and we LOVE it!
It's great for rapid prototyping and production of small parts ready for assembly, as well as for cranking out repetitive parts or large components.
ShopBot Tool, Inc., the maker of the ShopBot regularly holds Camp ShopBot for current and prospective users in different parts of the country and this year NextFab will be the host for the North East region. It's a great opportunity to share the knowledge and meet other fellow users and learn new tricks and tips. If you never had use it before, you'll find out all you need to know to get started.
The highlight of the Camp will be the “Show and Tell”. Bring in something made using their ShopBot, and show-off your skill!
There will also be a discussion on how you might utilize a Shopbot in a business application, and if you are already doing so, you can hear from others how they have been able to keep their doors open in the current economy.
