It’s home to the Bangor Design Conference, at the Pontio Centre, which is typically, at this time of year, in the final stages of planning. However, COVID-19 had to rush in, cause a planetary freak-out, and lead us to shut everything down.

This is a very small behemoth of an online community about 3D CAD, technology, design, robots, ninjas… Ok, maybe not ninjas so much, but those guys are COOL so there just might be something about some dang ninjas. Besides the occasional blast of intensely cool product design and technology, we look at what’s going on in the world of 3D, add a splash of business insight and web tech into the mix and there ya got your SolidSmack.
