Building networks of like-minded people is great fun! That’s what we’re all about at “HCx3DP New York” (with our focus of “Healthcare Multiplied By 3D Printing”). Unlike most social networks, “virality” is one of our inherent goals. Because we’re about innovation-making as a Group: via fun, fascination and infective thinking. At HCx3DP New York, we are out to build world-changing Community…join in AND enjoy…
With our “HCx3DP Campaign,” we’re intent on helping coalesce another world-beating industrial-segment Cluster in NYC. Cluster-building—and the advancements of our various Communities therefrom—is also one of our Campaign’s goals!

If you’d like to attend, please be our guest! We’ll be delighted to gratis “comp” you the gate-fee administratively for this event—so you may experience our enriching ROI. You’ll be sold on the value we’re delivering. BUT, first, you must join “HCx3DP Meetup NY” and then RSVP for our Tuesday, 3 February Meetup…
Welcome HCx3DP Synergist! (…present or prospective…)
Our next Meetup Event is Tuesday, 3 February! This is the latest update of our agenda for that coming evening (as of Super Bowl Sunday, 1 February):
We’re delighted to enjoy the generous hosting of ThoughtWorks for our 3 February Meetup.
TWorks is the innovative software development house—with offices in 12 countries, a client base in the Fortune 100 and a corporate “Social Impact Program.” The firm’s New York offices are at 99 Madison Avenue, 15th Floor (at the corner of East 29th Street, a few blocks southeast of Penn Station). Our event there will abide by our regular 6:30 to 8:30 PM event hours.
As promised, we’ve continued to develop our February 3rd “Expert” lineup. Via your attendance, here are the Expert Presenters you will now enjoy:
Digital-Laser Fab’ing for Med Devices and BioTech—Sarah Boisvert: Co-Founder and Chief 3D Printing Officer of Potomac Photonics, a digital-laser fabrication service with particular emphasis in the Medical Device and BioTech industries. She is also the Founder of Fab Lab Hub (with 62K+ Twitter followers!), which supports Fab Labs on the East Coast of the U.S. (Confirmed.)
3DP Retail’s Role in DIY HC—Sylvain Preumont: Founder & Director of iMakr of London and New York City. His innovative retail operations foreshadow how this rapidly developing 3DP segment of DIY/DIT end-users, makers, consumers and prosumers are likely to support, lead and invent 3D Printing’s future. We foresee a retail-driven marketplace for DIY Healthcare participants and players—especially with potential strategic alliances with new HC communities like Maker Nurses. (Confirmed.)
3DP Equipment & Process Showcase—Arthur Young-Spivey: Digital Fabrication Specialist at NRI, a digital-offerings service bureau—supporting the enterprise and professionals—from nine offices in the Northeast Corridor and major cities around the U.S. NRI has now enhanced its integrated technology, data and document management services—delivered on-site or from its production centers—with professional 3DP capabilities. On 3 Feb—because of the popularity of orientations—NRI is helping us to continue showcasing still largely unfamiliar 3DP equipment and functionality for the over-view education of our Meetup audiences. (Confirmed.)
