Fuel 3D Technologies, developer of 3D scanning solutions, will be demonstrating its ground-breaking 3D scanner at Maker Faire. Throughout the show, visitors to the company’s stand will be able to find out more about 3D scanning and receive a free 3D scan of their own face. They will then be able to access their file online for 3D printing or to experiment with other applications. In addition, the Fuel 3D scanner will be present on the Feetz stand at Maker Faire to showcase our recent collaboration with the developer of custom fit footwear. Why should I care? The world is getting very excited about 3D and 3D printing, but people are struggling to understand how they can get the content they need for these applications. The Fuel 3D scanner has been developed to allow anyone to generate high-quality 3D models from real-life objects. Fuel 3D has developed an affordable handheld 3D scanner that delivers high resolution shape and color capture for a range of 3D modeling applications, such as 3D printing, as well as on-screen applications like 3D art, animation and game development. The scanner’s ability to accurately capture color 3D models of the face is ideally suited to the rapidly growing trend of personalization.

Activation Space Title: Transit Connect Pinewood Race Description: Ford designed this space to speak to the ingenuity of the thinkers, tinkers, hobbyists and tech enthusiasts who use “remaking” to fulfill an individual vision. Stop by to create and race your own mini Pinewood Transit Connect Vehicle. And share your experience via our Instagram hashtag printer. Check out the winning Transit Connect designs from the Makers Design Challenge—a partnership with DIY blogs, Boing Boing and Make. The challenge encouraged Makers to put their creative vision on display by transforming the Transit Connect into their very own mobile lab.

In our stand you will find all our products developed since 2007, including XBee, GPRS, 3G, Radiation Sensor board, e-Health and HVAC IR Remote for Arduino and Raspberry Pi as well as Waspmote, our Open Source Sensor Platform for the Community. Visit us to meet special and funny demos based in Arduino and don't forget to attend the speech given by Mike Script, from GuardIt, about INSPIRE: the smart device which detects pneumonia in babies.
In this talk, Carla Diana will share research, inspiration and design work from LEO the Maker Prince, the world's first 3D printing book for kids, which comes with a number of carefully designed objects that readers can download and 3D print for free. Carla will share the process and motivations behind the project, discussing physical-digital design techniques as well as what happens when you unleash new visions out into the world and allow people to download and remix them at will.n
In conversations with culture and thought leaders, Connecting: Makers examines how the connected world is changing the nature of creativity. When everyone is a maker, new possibilities emerge, but with them come new responsibilities about digital transparency, cultural awareness, and the role of the designer.
Connecting: Makers is second in the Connecting Series, short films exploring trends in interaction and experience design. Produced by Microsoft Design and Bassett & Partners
When people ask "What's 3D printing for?" they expect simple answers. But in the wild, designers find uses for 3D printing in a vast range of fields. Here's a quick survey from my book-in-progress "Design & Modeling for 3D Printing" (MakerMedia 2014)
Kickstarter has the become the hub of innovation for 3D printing. This session will focus on how the 3D printing community is embracing Kickstarter as a platform for developing their projects in public.
Later this year Made In Space, in coordination with NASA, is launching the first 3D printer, specifically constructed for use in space, to the International Space Station.
In 2015 our second printer will be sent to the ISS as a permanent additive manufacturing facility. This printer will be available not only to NASA and the astronauts, but also to businesses, academics, researchers and artists - essentially everyone on Earth will have the possibility to email their hardware to space. 3D printing on-site in space will change the course of space development - from small tools to future large structures and colonization.
I'll talk about using 3D printing, textile printing, laser cutting and games to make customised toys, and how we brought Makies through traditional toy safety certification and got them onto real shelves at retail.
I'll talk about sales, margins, materials, design techniques and software, pitfalls, things to avoid, where the opportunity lies: make it quite a How-To.
"The making of" for Gramofon the new Social WiFi and Social Music box that lets you stream online music through your sound system, DJ with multiple phones as the remote controls, and more.
Hear how we developed the idea, built the prototype on Raspberry Pi and open source, developed the industrial design and models and 3-D prints, then worked with the China production house and finally took it to Kickstarter (at the end!) and to the commercial market.
