If you haven’t been to the Brighton Mini Maker Faire yet, then where have you been for the past four years? This year, for the fifth consecutive year, punters coming to the faire will have the chance to play around with all sorts of crafts, electronics, felt making, mosaics, lego robotics, polymer clay, jewellery, glass fusing, 3D printing… you name it and I bet you will be able to find it.
Here is a day for your diary. Don’t miss it as you might regret it!
Saturday 5th September – Interactive Exhibition and Workshops at the Corn Exchange, 10am-5pm Continue reading →
Are you a maker, inventor, artist, scientist, engineer, designer, hacker, or student who wants to share their latest creation or maker project? The call for entries for the Brighton Mini Maker Faire at the Brighton Dome on 5th September 2015 is now open.
3Dify is bringing 3D technology to the masses. Whether you’re an artist, baker, maker, hardcore technologist, digital dabbler, or someone whose only tablet is kept in the medicine box, the people behind this tech start-up would love to hear what you think.
All those who complete the quick survey (5 minutes – we promise) before 15th May will be entered into a prize draw. The winner will be invited to bring themselves and a friend or relative to 3Dify’s studio where you’ll be scanned, made into interactive 3D images which you can embed in social media, and have 3D printed mini sculptures of yourselves sent to you.
3Dify is taking part in the Artist Open Houses in New England House 11-13 December. If you would like to combine your Christmas shopping with the creation of a mini sculpture of yourself or your family, then book a 3D body scanning slot at 3Dify.co.uk
With all the media hype around 3D printing over the past couple of years there is no way of escaping the wonders of this old yet new and emerging technology. It’s not new because it’s been around for more than 30 years, but it has become more affordable and more accessible in recent years thanks the Open Source movement, the crowd-funding revolution, and lots of clever geeks.
As a follow up of the popular Break the Mould 3d scanning and printing arts installation, 3Dify is taking part in the New England House Open Studios at the Fusebox [ view map ], Level 4, on Thursday 12th, Friday 13th, and Saturday 14th December 12-8pm.
