Temps are dropping, rain is back in Seattle. Our maple trees have started to turn. On most days, we have to lower and close the enormous studio door that connects us with the neighborhood, as preserve heat inside. Fall is here.
This autumn we are experimenting with slightly more limited studio hours but will also be opening up for visits by various industry groups and organizations.
We are already planning the Fall Open House, which is a good opportunity to see the latest projects and get a little technical introduction to 3D printing with clay.
Timea is on a #3DTalk panel "Challenges of Developing Hardware: From prototyping to production line” during Seattle Startup Week. Her event is on Thursday, October 11th at 7pm at Thinkspace Seattle (1700 Westlake Ave N Suite 200, Seattle, WA 98109).
Starting this fall, we are proud to be part of Women in 3D printing.
We are welcoming 3 new interns to the studio: Kayla Lee (informatics), Erica Lee (industrial design), who will be working with Timea on all kinds of studio research and Nicolas Wong, who will be developing and implementing a communication plan for us. We are lucky to have Eli Kahn’s design skills contributing on our upcoming book project.
Finally, one of the greatest joys of the studio life is building on the exciting long-term collaborations that we have established in the past. Prof. Sara Billey and Timea are going to be working on Abelian Sandpile models with math research help by a terrific WXML team: Connor Ahlbach, Catherine Babecki, and James Pedersen.
