We haven't actually gotten to go yet (thanks Covid-19) but we are looking forward to our experience in June (fingers crossed). The customer service experience we've had so far with the Pasta Peeps has me so pumped for the actual event. My boyfriend is into 3D printing and is teaching me so I wanted to thank him with the full Pasta Experience. When I bought it, there was only one spot left. The Proto Pasta team were great and said I could still go, we'd just be limited to two spools of custom filament due to time and capacity constraints. This is awesome because we'll be able to do this together and have this great memory and two cool rolls of filament to share. Proto Pasta and their team rocks!
I haven't had the experience yet as it is in September. I am pretty stoked about attending though and then I will be happy to write a review of substance.
Thanks so much to the proto-pasta staff for opening your home to me and teaching me about filament making! Definitely worth the trip and I hope to return someday for round two.
Those are some great colors and prints. Obviously you wouldn't be the first to come for a second or third trip. We'd love to have you back!
Worth every penny. Super fun to make your own filament, meet other makers, and take a fun tour of the warehouse!
I will try to list all of the great things that happened at this workshop (June 2019). 1) Laid back, fun and relaxing pace. 2) Friendly employees at Proto-Pasta. The best! 3) Got to meet and socialize with like-minded 3D printer enthusiasts. Coming from a smaller town, I rarely run into anyone that wants to talk about 3D printers. It was great to meet people from around the country and share projects with them. We even swapped filament samples with each other at the end, increasing the variety of cool prints when I returned home. 4) ...and of course you make rolls of your own custom filament using industry leading gear! Where else can you do this?!? 5) Get a peek behind the scenes and learn how its all made! 6) Great food and snacks. IF YOU GET A CHANCE, DO THIS!
