NYC’s First ‘Monozukuri’ Meetup | #MakerMovement @fabfoundry_nyc @NYDesigns


In Japanese the word “monozukuri” means “making things” – ‘mono‘ is the thing, and zukuri is the act of making. Thus, monozukuri! The act, art, or craftsmanship of making things, hardware… ideas. It’s a Japanese word but it’s part of a broader global trend in recent years – the Maker Movement.

Creating a platform for hardware-centric startups, FabFoundry in partnership with NYDesigns are hosting the first meetup of monozukurists from Japan, Pittsburgh, and NYC next month on April 17th in Long Island City, Queens (at NYDesigns’ unique incubation and fabrication facility).

Details for the first meetup can be found here.

We will have exciting hardware startups and creators from Japan and investors in April, so we will host a meetup to network with hardware companies and creators from Japan at NYDesigns, an incubator for design and hardware tech startups in Long Island City, Queens.

Here is the current timetable:

3:00pm – 3:45pm Reception/Networking/Snack
3:45pm – 4:00pm Welcome by Tristan@NYD + Intro to Monozukuri by Nob@FabFoundry
4:00pm – 5:00pm Elevator pitches (4 mins intro x 12)
5:00pm – 6:15pm Workshop Part 1 (TBD)
6:15pm – 6:45pm Break/Networking/Food
6:45pm – 7:30pm Fireside chat on trends in Japan vs US (speakers TBD)
7:45pm – 9:00pm Workshop Part 2 (TDB)

(A second meetup – ‘Demo Day‘ – will be hosted the following evening in DUMBO, Brooklyn.)

Part-fabrication facility, part-accelerator, part networking and meet-and-greet with investors, the event promises to be novel for makers & funders alike.

Super PiBoy 64 Retropie #3DThursday #3DPrinting


Maxgayet shares:

Welcome on the Super Game Pi 64 !
Inspired by the excellent adafruit, thanks to Carasibana and his projet Super Game PiSP for the Start/Select buttons.

Hi guys, I spent hours on this game console. On the design first, to make it as small as possible (while keeping performance) and on the mapping buttons for some emulators that didn’t work great on the original project found on adafruit. I named it “Super Game Pi 64” because I started with the adafruit super game Pi project and I made a lot of changes to upgrade the game console and make the N64 works with GPIO buttons 🙂

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

slippytrumpet shared this project on Thingiverse!

Access to all ports and GPIO.
Stable with just one, but chainable also.
I’ve got the Pi Zero W. I think this should be good for all Pi Zero though

See more!

Road bike wall mount #3DThursday #3DPrinting


jpmorand shares:

No support materials needed. For a stronger build, make 4 passes perimeter walls.
Optimized for the gyproc anchors’ 1/4″ screws.

Daley shared this project on Thingiverse!

This is a simple keychain holder for the Apple AirPods. I’ve see too many people losing these things so I thought, what is something that I can attach them to that I have on my at all times? Ah-ha! my keys.

See more!

Tumbler Polisher for Metal Filled 3D Prints #3DThursday #3DPrinting


wisar shares:

If you want to print metal filled materials then you may end up wanting a drum type polisher to finish them without a lot of manual effort.
