Cool thanks for the help

Hi @abcimaging. You can do it in SketchUp but I find it's usually easiest to do in Netfabb. Export from SketchUp in OBJ, PLY, etc and then open in Netfabb. Use the "cut" x,y,z function to subdivide it into columns first and then rows. Then export each of the parts as a separate STL or whatever. Failing that, bounce it over to me and I'll do it for you.

Hello London,

This Saturday (15th Nov) there's a mini Maker Faire at Elephant & Castle. This is an introductory event to a GIGANTIC London Maker Faire next year. 

http://makerfaireelephantandcastle.com

It will be a great place to meet like minded people and you will also find some of the other London community members already attending.

Look forward to seeing some of you there

Hi London,

Have you heard about the project "Around the world in 80 prints" yet? London has been represented!

http://aroundtheworldin80prints.org/london-calling/

The journey has only just begun, anyone can participate by taking some freestyle photos, or setting your own traveller(s) free with a QR Code and seeing where in the world in might pop up!

Check it out, and I hope to see many of you at the meetup on Wednesday.

Greg.

Hi All,

Just a little reminder about the FabLab event happening next Wednesday 22nd October. It would be great to see you all there, makers meeting creators. We have some interesting speakers who are all occupying very different spaces in 3D printing so should be a good one.

Look forward to seeing you there :)

Hi Chris,

Welcome to the community! Looks like we're practically neighbors. I'm sure we will meet at the next meetup if not before then; I try to get to as many as possible, and I also know a few other members in our neighborhood. It looks like your are doing some exciting stuff and I'd love to hear more!

Cheers,

Greg

Hi, I have only just discovered/heard about 3D Hubs at TCT Live event in Birmingham NEC today!

http://www.tctshow.com/

Really great idea, very exciting :D I have been working/designing/ developing RepRap 3D printers since I was an undergraduate at Bath University. Right now I have about 5 printers in my flat in various states of operation - one is currently set up to make prototype PBCs, set up similarly to the method described here on the RepRap wiki:

http://reprap.org/wiki/Automated_Circuitry_Making

I also recently purchased a RepRapPro Omerod 2 - I really wanted to have a play with their Duet Electronics and get to grips with remote printing and monitoring.

I look forward to meeting people at the upcoming events :D

Cheers,

Chris

Hi,

We have just joined in 3D HUBS !!  it is great to be here. We just wanted to let everybody know that we were one of the first people to have the Z18 printer in the U.K. and are really excited to use it !!! If you have anything to print just let us know.

Kristal

Just to add! If some of you have have one too many prototypes already printed and they are just piling dust... I'd be happy to take them off your hands. I need a range of 3D printed objects to display at a workshop, to prove the range of things that can be made with additive manufacturing. It's quite soon so I won't be able to get it done myself amongst other things and so calling out to the community.

 

If you're interested, email me a pic of what you'd like to get rid of and sell at christina@espians.com

Thanks in advance!

Hi All!

I have an exciting challenge for the community. I need a Talon Hand from the amazing e-NABLE network for open, 3D printed prosthetics made in time for a trip abroad on the 10th of August. Ideally to have two printed, but one fully assembled. That does require someone that is gifted in crafting a leather gauntlet and palm for the prosthetic, so it's a more than just 3D printing...Anyone up for it?

Look forward to hearing from you!

Best, Christina

Yo'
We've just started on 3D Hubs and in order to get some nice reviews, we're starting off with very low prices. Just £4 start-up cost and £0.60 per cm3.
Stay beautiful,

Hi All
I am new to the 3D Hub. I am about to embark on a program for a local school that requires me scanning people, pets and art projects using an iSense 3D scanner.
Is there anyone out there who can help with the print? I would be after one colour and full colour print if possible.
Any idea's of the price?
If all goes well, I have been asked to run this across a number of schools.
Thanks, lee
