The Design 2 Part show is coming. It’s a convention that bills itself as the “Largest Design & Contract Manufacturing Show in Texas.” It was free for makers last year, but we had to register in advance.
I’ve been thrice. It’s filled with vendors of all kinds, and it’s a great place to go to learn about injection molding, stamping, design, extrusion, prototyping, finishing, CNC manufacturing, and so on.
