The [R]ed[U]x Lab collaborated with MakeLab on the Friday Night Live events at the Royal Ontario Museum. This has been a great opportunity for the general public to not only take in the incredible exhibits at the museum in the late evenings, but also experience firsthand the technologies the [R]ed[U]x Lab team take for granted including 3D modelling and 3D printing.
Based upon the current exhibition, Mesopotamia: Inventing our world, the event had [R]ed[U]x Lab members create a series of components of Mesopotamian buildings which were made accessible to the general public on iPads using 123D Design where individuals could custom design city blocks and have them 3D printed on a bank of 10 printers. Not only did the team create the virtual building blocks of the city, but they also created a display table for all the 3D prints (which has continued the group’s tradition of putting lights into the design). Not content with just helping out on the development of the Friday Night Live material, the [R]ed[U]x Lab team also assisted and oversaw guests at the event as they brought their respective Mesopotamian city blocks to tangible reality.
