3D Printing in Geneva

Gadget Guru is a short weekly radio show on World Radio Switzerland that I do with Tony Johnston.

Here’s the show from April 7th, 2015:

Here’s the usual set of links & videos from the show:

For more information about 3D printing, MAKE magazine is a great place to start:

To try 3D printing in Geneva, you can go to Post Tenebras Lab, the Geneva Hackerspace on any Tuesday night. It’s open to the public from 19h00 and they even have a communal meal. You might even see me there. We’ve just completed a major upgrade to our 3D printing capabilities and have 3 new printers including a Lulzbot TAZ 4 (a really big one!).

There’s the new Replik3D shop in Acacias. You’ll find their website here. Give them a call before you go to visit them as they are very new and sorting out their opening hours. Their website is in French but both Matthieu and Giovanni speak great English. They sell 3D printers, supplies and do printing services and more. You can even get a 3D scanned bobble head made of yourself in full colour!

You’ve also got Romain at Les Voisins coworking, and Sebastien at Onl’fait who both offer workshops and 3D printing services but you will need to speak French for these two.

Off the 3-D Printer, Practice Parts for the Surgeon

The New York Times reports on how surgeons are just learning to use new digital fabrication tools to create models, so that they can first practice delicate procedures:

Where will the doctors (and engineers and educators and artists and architects…) of the future get their first experiences with such cutting edge tools and approaches?  Fablabs are an ideal training ground for students, and a great place for entrepreneurs to test their ideas.

Changes in Autoentrepreneur formalities

autoentrepreneur

Lots of small autoentrepreneur changes came in on January 1st, with the most important one being that now you must have a separate bank account for your autoentrepreneur business.

Good news in that social charges have reduced, and a new requirement for using online tools for uploading your accounts if your turnover exceeds a certain threshold.
