Back to Meet the Makers

Printing Trains at Scales Up to 1:1

Presenter

For the last year we've been 3D scanning artefacts of the industrial revolution and making 3D printed models of them. We're also helping to make spare parts to fix them.


re:3D

Exhibit

re:3D is committed to trailblazing new frontiers in 3D printing. Our flagship technology, "The Gigabot" large format 3D printer, maximizes output volumes with respect to size, speed, and quantity of objects printed during a single production run. re:3D is also developing novel printer feedstock including cost-efficient recyclables and enriched composites. With a global online marketplace and a localized presence in both Latin America and the United States, re:3D is reaching untapped emerging markets worldwide. After a successful Kickstarter debut, our diverse team looks forward to an active presence in the international entrepreneurial and maker communities, and sharing our experience in StartUp Chile, one of the world's largest global accelerators.


Sixense Entertainment

Exhibit

Sixense will present MakeVR - a radically fun, easy and powerful way to model objects for 3D print and other uses. MakeVR uses a two-handed interface built around high precision motion tracking technology that allows makers to create very simple and very complex objects with natural hand motions. With MakeVR, you can reach into the creative environment to manipulate shapes, objects and tools. Our talk will demonstrate how we've brought fun to 3D software to let makers build objects ready for print in less time than it takes to complete an introduction class for other modeling products.

Talking Heads

Exhibit

Talking Heads are your multiple personalities realized. They can give you advice or just argue with you. Comfort or commotion, you control the conversationu2026with yourself.


The Amazing World of Itsy-Bitsy

Exhibit

What is real? What is a hologram? In this exhibit we'll examine how three dimensional laser holograms can take the place of real physical objects under 3D microscopic examination. It's an amazing world of itsy-bitsy. Can YOU tell what is real? Saturday only.


The FCMG 5(00) Autonomous Robot Races

Exhibit

The FCMG 5(00) Autonomous Robot Race is a contest of member built robots who must navigate a race track in the quickest time.


The Great Fredini’s Coney Island Scan-A-Rama

Exhibit

The Great Fredini's Coney Island Scan-A-Rama is a 21st century 3D portrait studio offering full body 3D printable portraits.


The MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner

Presenter

MakerBot CEO Bre Pettis will debut the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner at World Maker Faire. Bre is passionate about providing the tools for individuals and organizations to create the world around them through 3D Printing and 3D Scanning. Whether you're an expert in 3D modeling or just getting started, the MakerBot Digitizer will help you create clean, 3D-printable designs much faster than you could by hand.

Video Game Plushies: How-To Generate Sewing Patterns from 3D Models

Presenter

Want to make plushies of certain video game characters?nHave no pattern drafting experience?nnFear not!
Using a series of tools and scripts, it is possible to algorithmically generate the sewing patterns for your plushie. Starting with a in-game 3D model of the character, there are a variety of industry tools that can be manipulated to flatten the model, into a series of 2D shells. Using a bit code, those 2D shells can be transformed into viable sewing patterns
Come learn how!
