How about disability access?
The venue as well as the event has full disability access!
Can I leave my printer on overnight?
Printing overnight is not a problem, feel free to leave your printers on 24/7 so you can finish those long prints. It will also give our security guards something fun to look at while they patrol.
How much room will I have for my printer?
Each table is 100 x 50cm wide so there should be plenty of space. You can always book more then one if you’re feeling insecure.
Can me and my friend have seats next to each other?
At the moment we don’t have the option to pre order numbered seats, but if you show up in time and together chances are that you can pick seats right next to each other.

Can I bring my pets with me?
We urge people to leave their pets home. The venue itself is safe for pets but as there is a lot of people in movement and heavy machinery it’s not a suitable environment. There could also be someone with allergies who has a bad reaction.

Please get in touch with us regarding this.
What if I have some nice projects to show?
You are more than welcome to contact us regarding this and we will try to find a good spot for you.

If you’re interested in arranging some sort of talk or lecture then please visit this page and fill out the form. We’ll be in touch shortly.
What food and drinks do you offer?
The venue has restaurant and bar which also comes with a full serving permit. This means that we’ll be offering both light refreshments and rich meals as well as beer, cider and wine. We’re still deciding on the exact food that will be served, but if you have any suggestions, please enter them while booking your tickets. We will also offer some vegetarian/vegan alternatives in order to make sure there is something for everyone. Should our food options not be enough, there is always the possibility of going into town for something to eat.
What about safety and security?
The safety of you and your belongings are our number one priority. During the event hours the venue will be staffed by their own personnel as well as the 3D Meetup crew and we’ll be on the lookup for any trouble. During the time which the event venue is closed, the outside will be patrolled regularly and we’ll have a guard posted indoors during all hours we’re not there so that everything is safe and sound. We hope that this will make you feel confident that you can leave your equipment on site. Despite all these security measures, we cannot be held accountable for possible burglary or thefts. Participation is at your own risk. As always, it’s never a wise idea to leave loose items as the opportunity itself creates the thief. Make sure to keep track on your equipment so that nothing goes missing.
What to bring with you
We’ll be providing internet access through Ethernet and Wi-Fi during all hours of the event, we’ll also provide one electrical outlet per table. As we don’t have the option to provide tools and hardware for all attendees, please bring the following with you:
- Tools required to tinker with your printer(s)
- One or more power sockets to expand the single outlet
- If possible, bring prints with you to showcase your work
- Network cables, power cables or any other cables you might require
Will you offer any scrap filament collection?
Yes! Just like last year we will collect scrap plastic, so make sure to bring your failed prints with you. More information about this will be presented as we go.
How do I keep my self up to date about the event?
We’re available on all major social channels and will continuously post updates there before the event. We’ll also show any big news here on our own website.
I’ve lost something at the event, who do I contact?

Who do I contact should I have any more questions?
