Reposted from @fash_rev - Have you read the Fashion Revolution Consumer Survey Report?
In November 2018, we surveyed 5,000 consumers across 5 European countries, exploring which values are most important for citizens regarding the social and environmental impacts of their fashion consumption. The findings of the report reflect the growing demand for transparency, environmental accountability, and gender equality from fashion brands.
Which values are most important to you?

Oh snap, apparently there are official Cura Profiles for the MP Minis: https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=21711 Any word on how these work on the printers at the Mix? Might be worth experimenting with.
MIX Intro to Fusion 360, Monday, and Wednesday 10:00am-11:00am, sign-up now and reserve your spot!
There's a 3D scanner at the Mix right? What's the largest dimensions that can fit on it?
I checked your website but it still reflects your summer schedule; when is the next opportunity to get trained/certified on the 3D printers? Or are there walk-in opportunities? I ask because I don't live close to campus so I have to plan ahead when making the commute outside of my class times.
Looks like an amazing space! Any plans to get a classic laser cutter, something that can go through mdf and thin plywood and that sort of thing?
First successful stress test of drawing machine. So far so good!
2D sketcher is functioning properly in the MIX.
