Did you know one of our fellow Brisbane 3D printing enthusiasts also helps manage and moderate one of the largest 3D printing communities in the world? Reddit’s /r/3dprinting has over 300,000 members (over 4 million page views per month)!

Billie Ruben and Reddit

Come and listen to Billie Ruben share insights and experiences from her time leading, contributing to, and shifting the culture of this online community along with others, (such as the largest 3D Printing Discord Server).

The Edge, Stanley Place, Cultural Centre, South Bank

It’s a little tucked away, so let’s meet at the State Library reception between 5.45pm to 6.00pm then we can walk in together.

The Edge hosts a free, open-access Fabrication Lab at the State Library Queensland. Join us for a tour after the talk where you will get to experience the exciting resources they have on offer including; laser cutters, vacuum formers, sewing machines, CNC routers and 3D Printers (of course)!

The best way is to get there:
There is parking at the Cultural Centre that’s available at a flat rate of $17 (under the State Library is the closest one), and public transport is a stone’s throw away with the South Brisbane Train Station and the Cultural Centre Bus Station both within close walking distance.

What to bring:
Please wear/bring enclosed shoes as it’s a requirement for entering the Fabrication Lab. You can also bring along your latest 3D prints and join us for casual drinks and socialising afterward at nearby in Hello Please Bar and Restaurant in Fish Lane.

In the meantime:
If you would like to check out the communities Billie moderates before the event, you can find them here:
