Introduction to 3D printing in Pipoca

Pipoca

Tonight I made a short speech about 3d printing in Pipoca, a new co-working space in Barcelona.

It was for the opening and we were several presenters with topics like Lean startup, 3d Printing and Dragon dreaming.

The presentation (in Spanish) is available here in Slideshare. Basically I included pictures to show the variety of things you can make, and some links to explore further.

Obviously I also attached information about our project fabshub where I am co-founder and the user community 3dprintbarcelona, where I am a proud and active member 🙂

Mention to CloneWars and FundacioCim too.

What I found interesting is that it is changing a bit. Finally no body asked about the gun. Although the public was novice to 3d printing, I got interesting questions over than basic ones.

For instance if you can print several materials at the same time, or if it is possible to recycle failed prints material.

This last one was asked among a small group of women, with an intro “I am going to ask you something tactless”. And I replied first thing that came to my mind: “you are going to ask me if it is possible to 3d print a dildo?”. And the answer is Yes!! The models are here in makerlove.com [Update March 2017: site no longer available]. We had a good laugh haha.

Then as always I could test how different customer desires are. A girl told me afterwards that she liked one of the objects that I presented, something I would never wear myself. That’s why we have Lean for, the speech before mine 😉

The object is in fact a wearable planter. Interesting, right?
