Maker Faire Bay Area 2014

Making Toys with Maker Tech and Selling Them: Tales from the Frontline

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.
