Two Community Events - We the Rosies & ERRF

Post by TGAW » Thu May 10, 2018 3:39 am

Greetings All,
Mostly a lurker here, but I did want to make sure to alert everyone to two upcoming events.

We The Rosies for NomCom - Parts Due By May 20th
We The Builders is collaborating with Adam Savage to make a 6 foot tall Rosie the Riveter statue for the very first Nation of Makers Conference in Santa Fe in early June. The piece will be made out of 2625 3D Printed parts (in a variety of skin tone colored filaments). They are hoping to have all the parts printed by May 20th. As you may expect with that tight timeline, that are looking for as many contributors they can get. If you don't have any filament that would qualify as skin tone, I have seen on Twitter people printing in white and then painting it.

You can find out more about this community build and claim a part to print at:

East Coast Rep Rap Festival - June 23rd and 24th
And there is another inaugural event happening in June! The very first ERRF will be at the APGFCU Arena in Bel Air, MD (North of Baltimore). I am going to be assisting with logistics with the event, so I fear I won't be able to show off my MakerGear printers as much as they deserve. If anyone has any printing projects they would like to share at the event-- a [non-commercial] exhibitor booth is $10. Oh! Also they are going to be doing a 3D Printed Derby race overseen by Boy Scouts.

More on that, a link to buy tickets, 3D Printed Derby rules, and a downloadable flyer to help spread the word is at

Thanks All! Have a great night!
Vicky

Thanks for the post Vicky!
You're welcome! I may slink back to my lurking now.

Before I do-- I guess I should throw in that I very much appreciate MakerGear and how it has empowered me to make the things I want to make. TL;DR - Thank you for your printers. :)
