Maker Bayou Invite

Join us on Nov 13th as we bring the Maker Revolution to New Orleans

Join the Maker Revolution on Nov 13 from 6pm – 9pm at the Healing Arts Center on St Claude Ave  as we bring some of the leaders in Advanced Manufacturing (the Heart of the Maker Revolution) to New Orleans for a night of demonstrations, Q&A’s, and most of all .. New Orleans fun!

According to Chris Anderson, former editor and chief of Wired Magazine and CEO of 3D robotics , The Maker Movement will be the industrial revolution of our time. Never before in human history has the means of production and the tools to innovation been so readily available to those who want to create. We at IDIYA believe the Maker Movement is more than just a playground for engineers and programmers, but a Revolution that includes artist, craftsmen, builders, entrepreneurs, and anyone who dreams of turning their IDIYA’s into reality.

3D Systems: Advanced Manufacturing on your Desk

If the Maker Revolution Runs on CAD, 3D printing literally creates the wheels. Join us and our friend, Russell Lamoy from 3D Systems as he  demonstrate how today’s Advanced Manufacturing is literally at the touch of a button. Be there to see hands on demonstrations of 3D printing as well bring questions for a Q&A session on the limits and possibilities of today’s 3D printers.

CNC Milling Demonstration

Today’s Advanced manufacturing requires 21st century Understanding of Computer Numeric Control. Join David Elmore from EZ Router as he and his team demonstrate how fast and precise subtractive manufacturing can be. CNC milling can take your project, art, product, or production to the next level with computer guided precision. Dave and his team will be here to answer questions and discuss how CNC operations are changing not only industry, but the Art world as well!

Networking The Maker Revolution

Whether it’s a steep learning curve, high cost of equipment, or just a lack of space; there are always barriers to new technology. IDIYA is here to lower those barriers by providing the space, equipment, and most of all, the collaborative environment, to fuel today’s Maker Revolution. Join us as we discuss our plans for making New Orleans ground zero for the Maker Movement! Learn More about the Space and be the 1st to walk through the space as we build out the facility.
