New meetup group from Natural Robotics

,

We recently finished the works done in Natural Robotics shop in C/ Galileu, 243 in Barcelona, and we have opened it now to the public. We only sell machines, so in the end it is more a showroom than an usual shop.

And we have used the opportunity to start a meetup group about 3D printing. Last Wednesday we hosted the first session in Natural Robotics shop in Barcelona.

We had large experience in doing presentations and workshops on topics related to 3D printing through the 3D Print Barcelona group. And the events we will run will be supplementary, because the focus will be essentially practical taking advantage of all the machines and equipment available in our place. In addition, the orientation will be more for professional use.

Given this, there will be events related to how to benefit from 3D printing technology for SMEs and Professionals. And others even to go deeper in detail for example about the use of 3D printing to produce small series of product and the post-processing possibilities to make a good looking finished product.

First event

In the first event we gave an explanation of the three most known technologies: FDM, SLS and SLA/DLP.

As most of the people had never used a modeling application before, we improvised a small demo of TinkerCAD. It is an ideal tool for beginners because it is very intuitive.

After this we started the practical part, showing the workflow starting with the modeled object up to the printed object. We gave plenty of explanations about the STL file format, dos and don’ts to consider when modeling for 3D printing, and the most important parameters to define when doing the slicing of the object.

There was a very good response of the attendees, and this gave us good vibes to make more events like this.
