MakerLab would love to host YOUR next birthday!


Birthdays at the MakerLab!

This past summer, the Illinois MakerLab hosted its first ever birthday party! What better way to celebrate your big day than making yourself a gift?

This party consisted of a mixture of children and their parents. We had one of our expert gurus lead the workshop for Basic 3D printing. All of the materials are prepared and ready for immediate instruction and printing. The time allotted for the party is two hours, which gives additional time for food and cake!

This event had 6 children with their parents. At the end of the basic 3D printing workshop, we performed a demonstration of a head scan! A participant receives a scan of their head down to the beginning of their torso, giving a flatter base for modeling. After the print is completed, the birthday child will have a 3-dimensional print of himself/herself!

If you are toggling with ideas for your next birthday or your child’s next birthday party, the Illinois MakerLab would love to be involved! Keep in mind, attendees must be at least 7 years old to participate. Pricing can be discussed upon scheduling. Any additional supplies (food, cake, etc…) will not be provided by the lab, but we encourage you to bring those items!

3D printing has become more accessible and recognized worldwide. Learning the basic skills of 3D printing while celebrating a birthday couldn’t be more ideal!
