Come celebrate the unveiling of a new interactive sculpture and watch artists working with 3D Printing processes and making art in a fun, casual atmosphere.

All are welcome to engage in the experience of live action art-making and skateboarding!

IHMC and FCAC are collaborating using innovative methods to create 3D printed skate-able concrete “skulptures”, designed by FCAC’s Creative Scientist in Residence, David Fries from IHMC, and Rodney Mullen, “The Godfather of Modern Street Skating” from Redondo Beach, CA. On November 1st The legendary Rodney Mullen will be skateboarding on the “skulptures” at 3D Printsacola, embedded with augmented reality (AR), an interactive experience where the skateable object translates human engagement with the object in real time.

3D Printsacola will feature these completed 3D printed “skulptures” with an amazing skating demonstration by Rodney Mullen!

There will be a hands-on activity area for event attendees to drop in and experiment with stamps and printmaking techniques, and there will also be an incredible learning opportunity utilizing IHMC’s 3D Printable STEAM robots, geodesic dome structures that create their own patterns on paper as they move!

A limited number of VIP tickets available for November 1st: includes catered hors d’oeuvres, drinks, AND the opportunity to mingle with Rodney Mullen, IHMC team, and participating artists.

VIP tickets will be available for purchase via Eventbrite on October 15th. Only 40 tickets will be available for purchase! Tickets for 3D Printsacola Friday, November 1st from 7:00 – 9:00 pm: FREE for members/$10 Suggested Donation
