Connect 2018 Summary

Two weeks ago, Shop3D.ca ventured out to the beautiful Niagara Falls to take part in CONNECT 2018 - Canada's Learning & Technology Conference.

We set up and weren't sure quite what to expect, given that this was our first year in attendance, but we knew we wanted to make a big splash and turn some heads! (But we'll get into that in just a moment)

The show was filled with an enthusiastic & high-energy group of educators who were all interested in seeing what the latest innovation for the classroom was.

Well, we didn't want to disappoint so we made sure to bring our Ultimaker 2 Extended+, our Ultimaker 3 and a new addition to the Shop3D.ca line up; the Dremel 3D45.

All the printers shone but the real show stopped was our 3D printed Arcade Claw Machine. 

We wanted a fun and interactive way for people to get sample prints.  Giving them out is too easy and not everyone might actually care for one.  BUT, when you turn it into a classic arcade game, people were loving it!

Be sure to keep up with our blogs as we'll we posting up a "how we built it" blog soon.

We want to thank everyone that was involved in organizing the event and to all the people that came out to see our booth and spend time chatting with us about 3D printing. We hope to see you all again next year, and stay turned for what Shop3D.ca might have in store next!

“For the members who might be interested in 3D printing, and in integrating 3D printing into their workflow, the largest barrier was that they either assumed that 3D printing could do anything, or that it couldn’t do the thing they needed it to,”
