You have a prototype, but now what? Whether you’ve designed a garment or an electronic device, you probably don't have the resources to set up your own production, but you can work with contract manufacturers (CMs) to get your product manufactured. Keep your production nimble, your costs down, and your innovation local by selecting and working with the right partners. Find out how! Join Durolabs founder Michael Corr for this practical lecture aimed at hardware startups, fashion designers, product developers, and emerging brands looking to scale their business. Michael has worked with numerous startups to set up their manufacturing supply chains, and he will provide practical advice for getting your product off the ground. We'll have pizza and refreshments, including Califia Farms iced coffees and juices.
- 26 Apr. 2017Fusion 360 - More 3D PrintingChristchurch, New ZealandDetails +Details -
As a bit of a recap of a previous session, but with a new twist, the plan for this one is to create a freeform character in Fusion 360 and 3D print it. The difference this time is we are going to design it in a way that will allow us to connect a machined part on to the bottom in a future session. So it's really Part 1 of 2, of a hopefully interesting workflow. If you haven't seen or used the freeform modelling tools in Fusion 360, check out some of these videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPpbaKqTS2c https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XD7HBFlIFMM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRwdzwYd5iU Create some shapes to share with the group, and we'll discuss freeform modelling techniques. If you have a 3D printer, you can get some nice looking parts using these surfaces. Don't worry if you've never used Fusion 360 before. The freeform stuff is easy to get started with. If you have your own reasonably powerful laptop, it'd be awesome if you could bring it with you to work on. Even more points for you, if you install Fusion 360 and create an Autodesk ID before the session. Start with the trial download here: http://www.autodesk.com/products/fusion-360/overview

DESCRIPTION Welcome to another installment of the Future of Hardware Meetup! For this event, we’ll be digging into some of the newest advancements in Additive Manufacturing, and how these changes are beginning to impact the way we design + manufacture products. See what people said about past events: https://www.meetup.com/future-of-hardware/events/241149197/ Agenda: 6:00 - Doors Open (Food + Drinks) 6:30 - Kickoff, Taylor Stein -- Autodesk 6:45 - Presenter, Matt Hovanec -- Project Escher 7:05 - Presenter, Nathan Fuller -- FormForge 7:25 - Presenter, TBD 7:45 - Networking + Presenter Open Chat Time 8:30 - Doors Closed Details: Traditionally, modeling software has given engineers and designers the power to create anything we can imagine in a digital space, but going from bits-to-atoms isn’t always a guarantee. We find ourselves altering designs, simplifying features, and sacrificing functionality for the sake of “manufacturability”. That’s why we are very excited to announce a group of speakers that are taking Additive Manufacturing to the next level! Check them out plus read a little about what they’re working on: Matt Hovanec, Project Escher - Autodesk Project Escher is a parallel processing system where numerous independent tools work together to fabricate a design. Through software and control strategy, Project Escher enables a new manufacturing architecture. Nathan Fuller, FormForge FormForge’s freeform additive technology combines the speed of automotive-scale 3D printing with the power and flexibility of industrial robotic arms, unlocking designs that were previously impossible. TBD -- Reach out to us? -- email@example.com Are you, or someone you know, doing something big in the additive manufacturing space? Shoot us an email and we’ll see if there is a fit for you to jump into the last speaker role!
