Prior to the exhibition, during the second week of December, NextFab will be hosting a week long learning collaboration between selected Icelandic and Philadelphia based artists. The collaborators will interact with NextFab's community of makers and learn from local artists that have harnessed the power of digital fabrication at NextFab. The collaborators will then apply these newly learned fabrication methods to the creation of an artistically expressive piece which will be displayed at the exhibition. Read more about the artists here.
The week will culminate in an event, with artists sharing their insights and the knowledge they have gained during the week working at NextFab along side Philadelphia's creative community.
We hope to see you there – get an early look at selected works and learn about the techniques behind this outstanding exhibition while mingling with other Philly creative types! Please RSVP
3D Hubs, the world's premier platform for 3D printed goods at the local level, is partnering with NextFab to host it's launch event in Philadelphia. You're invited to join 3D Hubs and NextFab on December 18th to hear from the city's 3D printing leaders and network with makers and printer owners. Food and drink will be provided.
3D Hubs is unlocking cities across the United States by connecting at least 20 local printers in each city to the hub. By going local, 3D Hubs provides each city's maker community with an average delivery time of their prints in just days, not weeks. The goal is to unlock the future of local manufacturing and with successes in New York, Los Angeles, London, Amsterdam, Berlin and Sao Paolo already we're well on our way. 3D Printer owners simply connect their printers to the hub and make money for the use of their machines, which are currently sitting idle for most of the day. All this is done while supporting the local maker community in the process.
To join 3D Hubs' Philadelphia Launch event at NextFab on December 18th, please RSVP.
