3D printing enthusiasts can learn about the latest innovations in the industry at the 2nd Annual East Coast RepRap Festival (ERRF) and connect with others who share an interest in 3D printing on October 12-13, 2019, at the APGFCU Arena at Harford Community College in Bel Air, MD. The event is open to all 3D printing aficionados: business owners, educators, hobbyists. Companies and individuals will be displaying their creations and demonstrating new ways to use 3D printing.

Highlights of the two-day event include:

  • Keynote talk by Adrian Bowyer, founder of the RepRap project. Bowyer, a British engineer and mathematician, is credited with increasing the global accessibility of 3D printing via the RepRap machine.
  • A 3D printed derby car race. Bring your own printed car and partake in this fun challenge of design and engineering.
  • ProtoPlant, the Vancouver, WA-based manufacturer of Proto-pasta 3D printer filament, will demonstrate how Proto-pasta is made using its self-made extrusion technology.
  • Meet “The 3DPrinting Nerd” and YouTube sensation Joel Telling.
  • An array of the latest 3D printers, large and small, will be on display.
  • Watch and learn how you can use your 3D printer to create furniture, musical instruments, artwork, spaceships and more.
  • Talks and workshops by 3D printing industry leaders, including IMade3D.
  • Low-cost, full-body scans offered by Twisted Dimensions.

“We are excited about our second ERRF. Last year’s inaugural event drew over 700 people from 24 states and Washington, DC, and this year’s event promises to be an even larger celebration of all that 3D printing can be,” said Chris Pelesky, organizer of the event. “Over 60 exhibitors are lined up and ready to show everyone how they are using 3D printing to change the world.”

The ERRF’s industry-based sponsors include Printed Solid, E3D-OnlineProto-pasta, Prusa Research and e-NABLE.

Tickets and more information, including registration for several popular workshops, are available at Tickets are $10, with senior and military discounts available and free admission for children under 18.
