Layer by Layer: A 3D Printing Primer presented by Locus Labs

We at Locus Labs and Gallery Aferro are excited to invite you to join us March 11th at 2pm for our FREE presentation: 3D Printing x New Media Art. The event will be hosted by Locus Labs, a start-up innovation tech hub in Newark. The group will be introducing Locus Lab, discussing the vision for the co-working studios, shops, offices, and classes, explaining 3D Printing technology, and exhibiting artistic applications (See our Lulzbot Mini in action!).

Introduction to 3D printing technology:

1) High level introduction on 3D printing, additive/desktop manufacturing.

2) What’s all this fuss about 3D printing and why is it so important?

3) What are some specific uses of 3D printing?

3D printing has not only advanced the capabilities for engineers and scientists, but for artists as well. Contemporary new media artists are utilizing 3D printed materials for sculptures, animations, fibers, fashion, animatronics, glitch, and fine art. Many interesting and exciting fusions between art and technology have been occurring because people from different worlds and backgrounds have been meeting each other and collaborating. Locus Lab’s shared-use makerspace plans to provide a platform for artists, craftsmen/craftswomen, engineers, scientists, and techies around the Newark area to work alongside each other and form connections.

We look forward to you joining us for our presentation. Please RSVP by March 10th end of day, the event is free and open to the public but spots are limited.
