Hackspace Manchester, in association with 3DPUG Manchester, is holding a RepRap build weekend.
This weekend offers the rare opportunity to build a Mendel90 RepRap under the guidance of its creator, Chris Palmer (nophead). There are 6 places available for people or groups of up to 3 people to build and configure their own 3D printer.
The price of £675 includes a Mendel90 Kit (solderless version to improve build speed), two full days of hands-on tuition, lunch on both days, tea, coffee and biscuits, and one free month of membership for one person to Hackspace Manchester.
Attendees will need to bring a laptop to install the printing software on (one per reprap), as all other parts and a shared toolkit will be provided. If attendees wish to bring their own tools to avoid waiting to use shared tools, the Mendel90 Manual has a full list of necessary tools on page 7.
Places are limited to 6, so book early to avoid disappointment! There is a £100 deposit payable upon booking, with the remaining £575 to be paid before March 1st. Email: [email protected] to book your place.
Note: Due to unforseen issues, this event has been delayed until later on in 2013. More information will be posted shortly.
Location: Hackspace Manchester, 44 Edge Street, Manchester, M4 1HN
Time: 10am – 6pm, Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th of March, 2013
