I'm organising a Meetup for all Sketchfab members, scanners, 3D artists and interested parties.
EDIT: Date and time confirmed : Feb 25th. Create Space. Wembley Point
EDIT2: Please RSVP here
Date and venue are yet to be fixed but I'd like to float Create Space at Wembley Point on the North circ as a good venue and February as the timescale. Here's some detail on the proposed venue...
Please post here or contact me directly if you'd like to come with your preferred days of the week, times and any other venues you think we should consider and anything you'd like to happen at the Meetup. Of course, if you'd like to be involved in enabling this Meetup, please feel free to let me know.
A couple of suggestions for things we could do, in addition to getting to know people....
Scan everyone and put up an account specially for showcasing London's talents.
Demos of scanners - Occipital Structure, Matter and Form, Primesense Carmine. Anybody want to show off a Fuel3D??
Software demos? Meshlab, Netfabb, Rhino, Blender, Meshmixer etc etc?
Short presentation from Sketchfab?
A scanning competition? Half an hour to scan whatever you can find. And there's loads of stuff around Create Space. Sketchfab good bag prize.
Intro to 3D printing?
Present one of your recent projects? 5 mins max.
Present your biggest challenge.
Prize for the person who's travelled the furthest? Postcode-to-postcode according to Google Maps. Sketchfab goodie bag prize?
OK. There ya go. Plenty of food-for-thought there, I think. London is easily one of the most creative cities in the World. Let's build a fantastic creative community and show the World what we can do!
All the best!
