This Wednesday and Thursday sees the NEC become home to one of the biggest digital manufacturing technology shows: TCT. The show is a huge event on the calender of anyone involved in the 3D printing and additive manufacturing industry. The event has historically been dominated by large corporate leaders like 3DSystems and Stratasys, showcasing new technologies and products.

We are really excited to see Ultimaker’s recently launched 2nd generation machine and demo’s of Paul Candler’s fantastic micro prints (50 micron goodness). We are very proud to be part of the RepRap Hub; the first time the OSHW movement has exhibited at TCT. There will be many of the RepRap community leaders, including Alessandro (Slic3r), Chris Palmer (Nophead), Adrian Bowyer (the Godfather of RepRap), Paulo and Gary Hodgson (RepRap Magazine) and leading the hub is Richard Horne (RichRap).

The show also provides the opportunity to see talks by some of the industry’s biggest evangelists. MakieLab’s inspirational CEO Alice Taylor will be giving a keynote speech on Wednesday in the main arena.

We are looking forward to taking part in the show. Come by Table G54 to chat about the latest material developments in 3D printing, or just grab some swag! :)
