BarCamp Berkshire II

Today brought an amazing session of 3D printing outreach, at BarCamp Berkshire II, an ‘unconference’, hackathon and general congregation of geekery at the 02 Telefonica headquarters in Slough.

I had so many great conversations with people seriously interested in 3D printing, and was able to demo my RepRap in action printing TVRRUG parts.

The first iteration of ‘Nozzle-cam’, a basic webcam, stripped to its PCB and attached to the back of the X-carriage, went down very well, as did the range of objects I brought along which had been 3D printed using a variety of different additive manufacturing processes, such as SLS and stereolithography, as well as FDM, and exotic new materials from Materialize, courtesy of Wendy in TVRRUG.
