Swindon’s computing museum and 3D printing

Sunday 30th November 2014

When I first began writing this blog I devised, as a starting point, my own non-definitive list of 10 things to celebrate about Swindon. One of these 10 things was Swindon’s very own museum of computing – which is indeed a gem. To add to the visitor experience at the museum special events are often held – a recent one being a 3D printing day organised by Swindon Hackspace. I really wanted to get down to the museum and see what they were up to but sadly wasn’t able to.

The Swindon Hackspace is a group formed in June 2012.  They hold weekly meetings for those interested in making, breaking, and fixing things. They are a new hackspace, looking to build membership and grow their toolkit. The members work on a range of projects that usually involve electronic hardware, software programming, and mechanical assembly. Popular projects often include prototyping electronic circuits using breadboard, and interfacing with ArduinoRaspberry Pi or Stellaris LaunchPad microcontrollers.

Leading lights of Swindon Hackspace ( my words not theirs :-)) Jess Robinson and her partner James own a 3D printer and are the people to contact if you want to talk to someone about anything to do with 3D printing. Here’s a link to their website: http://www.jandj3d.co.uk Jess has been working on something for me – an imagining of my   AA Editorial Services logo in 3D, that I’m quite excited about.

Here’s a link to their blog post about the 3D printing day held at the museum: http://blog.jandj.me.uk/2014/11/28/3d-printing-day-at-the-museum-of-computing/
