API hackathon in Utrecht (Netherlands) on 22 march
#1
On 22 march we invite you to Utrecht (the Netherlands) to control 3D-printers with your favorite programming language!

The Doodle3D WiFi-Box makes almost all 3D printers wirelessly controllable through a simple REST API. This means you can control them using Processing, openFrameworks, JavaScript, Arduino, Cinder etc. Basically any language that can send and receive HTTP requests (ajax).

So what could you make? You can think of the Doodle3D drawing application as the first application written on top of the API, it makes 3D printing a simple sketch child’s play. Another example is Cura, which uses the API to enable wireless sending a print to your printer. But using the WiFi-Box you could control a printer using a Kinect, influence an ongoing print with sound input, maybe make a creative cup designer or adding an embeddable print button to an existing design application or website like thingiverse or youmagine.

Admission is free but registering essential so that we can do groceries. Please bring a laptop and a 3D printer if you have one. We’ll have enough Doodle3D WiFi-Boxes available during the day.
