Festival of the Mind Build Weekend
October 21, 2012 12:40PM
On the weekend 29th & 30th of september we had a build competition at the Sheffield RepRap User Group.

This was in conjunction with the University of Sheffields Festival of the Mind event and was hosted by the Gist Hub.

5 Teams competed to build a Mendel 90 each and print a wining entry that embodied the Craft and Magic of 3D printing. The winning team got to take away the Golden Spanner Trophy.

The winning team was the Derby Makers team:-

Of course there were other things printed too eg :-

The weekend was a huge success and more importantly was great fun for all who took part. I would like to say a big thankyou to everyone that made the event what it was:-

Nophead for the Mendel90, design, kits and expert supervision.

The Gist Foundation and Gist Lab for hosting the weekend.
