Intrigued by 3D printing? How about creating your own 3D printed souvenir using data from the Great North Run!
Come along to one of our free 3D fabrication sessions and make your own unique shape from your run’s time stamps to take home as a memento of your past or present Great North Run achievements.
With the running chip data being recorded and stored over the past several years, anyone who has taken part in a Great North Run in the past or is taking part in the run this year can sign up to one of the sessions to create their unique souvenir. In these half-an-hour sessions, led by product designer and Newcastle University PhD researcher Bettina Nissen, you will be able to digitally create and 3D print your personalized souvenir. Bettina will not only help you generate your unique shapes, but will also take you through the whole 3D printing process and answer any questions you may have about the making process from your run data through to digital shape generation and fabrication technology.
If you've never participated in the Great North Run before, don't worry, you can still book a session and perhaps create a souvenir made using Mo Farah's timestamps, or any athlete of your choice.
Sessions are limited, so book your slot for free today by clicking here!
