The first of its kind in the UK, the 3D print show promises to show you things that most people still regard as science fiction.
Taking place on 19th-21st October 2012, the 3D Printshow will be UK’s first major 3D printing trade and consumer event. The event will host over 70 exhibitors, ranging from major manufacturers and software developers to design studios, architects and medical companies. The aim is to showcase the extraordinary range of applications 3D print technology has and demonstrate to the consumer how it will affect their lives in the future.
The 3D Printshow features live demonstrations, seminars, workshops, full 3D body scanner and a class on 3D fashion and jewellery design
Organizers are keen for their visitors to engage with the technology in any way they can and leave with increased knowledge and understanding. For example they will be setting up a full 3D body scanner, and a large design bar with a row of iMacs and experts on-hand to offer tuition on design principles. They will also be running a series of educational workshops and seminars, ranging from a master class in using 3D print to improve businesses, to a class on 3D fashion and jewellery design.
3D printing has allowed designers to create shapes and textures that they could previously only imagine
In order to demonstrate the creative applications of the technology a dedicated gallery space will house conceptual art and sculpture from approximately 40 different international artists, including prestigious designers such as Neri Oxman or Assa Ashuach. The event will also be holding London’s first 3D print live show, featuring fashion, accessories and gadgets as well as a live catwalk show, featuring some of the most amazing new 3D fashion, from clothes to shoes, swimwear to hats. 3D printing has allowed designers to create shapes and textures that they could previously only imagine, so this promises to be unlike any fashion show you’ve seen before.
Visitors will also have the option of buying products or printing their very own designs!
The event will be held at The Brewery, 53 Chiswell Street, London, EC1Y 4SD.
