You might have seen the LED in person in the past year at a few of our events. If you are interested in the R&D process of making project check out Robert’s youtube channel Part Fusion.
Pitch your idea and I-Form, the SFI Research Centre for Advanced Manufacturing, will turn the winning idea for sustainability into 3D printed reality.
Shape the Future is a competition open to all who have an idea to help build a sustainable future. The competition is looking for makers to show how 3D printing can help the planet. Whether it’s an idea for a new
product, a new use for an old product, or simply replacing a missing a part to an engine, vintage car or old piece of kit. How can 3D printing help us reduce waste, and find new uses for old materials?
Come join us for a fun and illuminating workshop of light art with polarisation to celebrate the UN International Day of Light (IDL). IDL is an annual event to educate and promote the area of optics and photonics.
This workshop will kick off with a short presentation on polarisation and why it’s important and afterwards there will be a hands-on demonstration that will combine optics (light) and the use of fabrication techniques. Each participant will assemble a laser cut holder with 3D printed parts and then will design their own polarisation artwork. Each kit can be taken home.
*** You must be 18 years of age or older to take part in this workshop. Please do not book places for children ***
Date: Saturday 29th June 14:00
Cost: Free but booking required with the link below.
This workshop is kindly supported by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics.
The workshop content is derived from the phablabs project.
