MakerBot 3D Printing Demonstration

Terri Smith

October 9, 6:00 PM–7:30 PM

On Thursday, October 9 from 6:00 – 7:30 pm MakerBot will give a 3D printing demonstration and talk followed by a Q&A session. This demo will include a MakerBot company overview, a 3D printer demonstration, more on their retail stores, and information on how their printers work, with an overview of each printer. They will also share some customer use cases and great MakerBot stories. The event is free and open to the public.

The demonstration and talk are programming for the current Franklin Street Works exhibition It Narratives: The Movement of Objects as Information, which features, among other things, print on demand items, including several 3D prints. MakerBot is the official 3D printing sponsor of the show.

It Narratives explores the intersection between modern digital communications media and the traditional postal system. The artists in It Narratives find forms for everyday experiences of distance and time by reflecting on the way objects move through information networks. The exhibition is curated by New York-based guest curators Brian Droitcour and Zanna Gilbert. It is on view through November 9th at Franklin Street Works.

Exhibiting artists include: Greg Allen, Tyler Coburn, Tim Devin, Yevgeniy Fiks, Lukas Geronimas, Frank Heath, David Horvitz, Jean Keller, Alexandra Lerman, Kristin Lucas, Cat Mazza, Kristina Lee Podesva and Alan McConchie, Paul Soulellis, Emily Spivack, The Thread, Ehren Tool, Print All Over Me, Forms of Melancholy, Lance Wakeling, Roberto Winter.
