Looks like I forgot to email this and it remained in draft till now.

If you're ever back in Auckland there's a makerspace at Auckland Library -
central library branch that's not far from the venue.

In fact last year Vik Olliver, Tamara and a few others held demos of
Diamond Age 3d printer at other library branches over the school holidays.
