This panel brings together talented designers Todd Blatt, Kacie Hultgren, Tony Buser, Matt Stultz and Fred Kahl - all featured in Matthew Griffin's upcoming book "Design and Modeling for 3D Printing;" (Early Release, Sept 2013). Each will share about their design practice -- how they got started, how they develop their work, what new tools and techniques they are picking up -- as well as opportunities to learn more about their design work elsewhere at this year's Faire. Moderator Griffin will also share leads for other breaking 3D-related design and printing technology attendees can check out.
I keep my dog hydrated with this 3D printed bottle carrier that doubles as a bowl.
I designed it specifically to work with 16.9oz Poland Spring bottles - one of the more ubiquitous water bottles you can find.
I got involved with the maker movement through movie prop replication. On the Replica Prop Forum, people spend a lot of time and pay incredible attention to detail to identify parts of screen used props in films and TV shows. The parts which are never identified or were created from scratch for the orignal film prop must be recreated by traditional sculpting, or now more and more with 3d printing. I will talk about how I use 3d printing to model and manufacture movie prop replicas like the green lantern ring, and will tell the story of m first movie prop replica project, recreating the Sonix Victory 75 radio used on Sandtrooper backpacks.

Autodesk 123D is free software integrated with content and fabrication services. At Maker Faire NY Autodesk will be hosting a hands on makerspace where participants can have hands on experiences with our free apps and 3d printers. We also will be hosting an educational hack-a-thon where educators will be answering the question ""How do you use a 3D printer in your classroom?
The B9Creator is an open source hardware/software high resolution 3D Printer. The B9Creator combines innovative methods with off the shelf DLP technology to produce parts that compare with machines costing thousands more. A wide range of photo-polymer based resins can be used to obtain the material properties desired. From resins that are suitable for lost wax casting applications to very reactive "fast grow" resins for quick proto-typing. No other machine comes close to offering the flexibility and low entry cost. Launched in early spring of 2012, the B9Creator has been delivered and is in use by hundreds of satisfied users already and enjoys the largest resin based printer user community anywhere. Don't wait any longer, get printing "hi-res" today!
