Bringing Together Makers & The 3D Printing Community

Location: HackPGH

Wow… Just, wow…

Rapid + TCT took place in Pittsburgh this year, and our humble little 3D Printing group brought together MatterHackers, Ultimaker, Make:, Lulzbot,, and Makers for a fantastic night of 3D printing tech talk and a little southwest food flair.

I would write more in this post; however, Sarah Goehrke, Editor-in-Chief of, already did! Check out her coverage of our event here.

Sarah Goehrke, Editor-in-Chief of, wrote an article about this month’s massive meetup!

Chris and Ryan had press credentials, and they got to hang out at the conference as well. You can see more about that here!

RAPID + TCT Conference 2017

3DPPGH was fortunate enough to have this year’s RAPID+TCT conference in our backyard. Chris and Ryan explored the show throughout the week and observed some exciting releases both in the industrial and consumer additive manufacturing spaces. Consumer 3D printing manufacturers included folks like MakerGear, Ultimaker, Lulzbot, Affinia, and much more… Demonstrations of a variety of industrial processes rounded out the event.

Stratysys announced their additive manufacturing cells.

The most interesting (and I use that word loosely) was the 3D-printed, accessory fashion show.

We spent Tuesday evening at Heinz Field, and Chris and Ryan were able to grab a photo with Pittsburgh Steeler greats, Mean Joe Greene and Franco Harris!
