Back to Meet the Makers

direct to metal 3D printing


Demonstration of an early prototype printer using liquid metal jet printing (LMJP).



The DIWire is a wire printer, a new archetype for rapid prototyping. This new 3D printer bends wire into curves that can be assembled to make just about anything.

DIY Action Figures


I've been making DIY dolls and figures for several years. In 2009, I sculpted a 2-foot tall ball- jointed doll with 17 points of articulation, which I molded in silicone rubber, cast in polyurethane resin, and made into a series of fashion dolls for New York Fashion Week. Currently I'm working on another series of highly-articulated action figures, also cast in resin. In this presentation, I'll be walking the audience through the entire creative process - from creating the master sculpt, molding and casting the parts, and assembling the finished figures.

DLP 3D Printer


This is a 3D Printer that uses a DLP Projector (outputting UV light) and a polymer that solidifies within this UV range. The plastic solid is formed layer by layer with the help of a stage that is lowered into the polymer.



DressCode is a design software that allows novice programmers to produce physical crafts through computational design, digital fabrication and handcraft.

Ford Transit Connect Wagon


We support ingenuity and the thinkers who use "remaking" to fulfill an individual vision, not only with the Ford Connect, but with anything that can be transformed to support a personal lifestyle, hobby or home business. Visit us at



Formlabs makes the Form 1 3D-printer, a high-resolution desktop stereolithographic (SL) printer. Stop by to look at amazingly high-resolution parts, learn about designing your own complex assemblies, lightpipes, and other awesome pieces made possible with high-resolution SL printing!

From WikiHouse to WikiFactory


In 2011 we launched WikiHouse - an open source construction system that aims to make it possible for anyone to download, CNC-cut & assemble their own house. WikiHouse is now a growing community for digitally fabbed housing with teams in New Zealand, France, Brazil, the US & the UK. In 2012-13 we followed WikiHouse with OpenDesk - open source design furniture made locally. OpenDesk connects digital designs with a network of fabricators able to make on demand, in response to local orders. We are now building - a full platform for distributed making of design products. We're looking for designers & makers who share our vision.

GeekDad LLC

Exhibit and are the parenting sites for the geek generation. We love Dr. Who and gaming and electronics and food-hacking and everything else that makes geeks passionate. We want to share these things with our kids, and ensure they know that being different is the best thing in the world.

gMax 3D Printer – Print Bigger


gMax is a new and very large personal desktop FDM 3D printer with an incredible 16 in. x 16 in. x 9 in. (2,304 in3) build volume!

Hacking the Un-Hackable: How We Can Make the Entire World Interactive


With new electronic and rapid prototyping tools, cheap microprocessors and sensors, 3D printers and printed electronics the world around us can be hacked, twisted and extended with functionality that it is not supposed to have. Everyday physical objects, both living or artificial can be made interactive, responsive and digital: living plants that control music, human bodies that transmit sound, touch screens on water and 3D printed interactive eyes. We can enhance our world with new experiences and functionality that will educate, delight, entertain us and make our lives better in countless ways that are yet to be invented.

Jolly Roger Labs


Jolly Rogers Labs - Simplified Learning and Prototyping.

Laser Cutting LAB


We want to share a framework for thinking prototyping with the laser cutter. This includes building your intuition for cut parameters and demonstrating possible techniques.Stop by to learn to laser cut like a boss!

LIB3: Open Hardware Designs and Agile PCBA


LIB3 makes SMT PCB manufacturing available to hobbyists and small businesses with a unique workflow tailored for prototype and small-run volumes. Come see our work and watch our OSHW solder paste robot build you a circuit.



Makeably is a place where new things get made and where every product is customizable and remixable by you (home decor, cool gadgets, toys, art, and more). We bring together users and makers in an environment that encourages individuality and creativity. Stop by and say hello to our team, check out some of the coolest creations our users and makers have made, and celebrate the maker in everyone!

Making Machines that Make


Tools are the transformers which adapt us to the material of our world. Stop by and learn how to build your own computer-controlled tools to automate something that you would otherwise do by hand.



Microsoft provides foundational technologies that allow people to learn new abilities, create new software, and control the emerging world of computer controlled manufacturing devices.

The Microsoft tent at Maker Faire New York will interactively demonstrate how Microsoft technologies and partners help enable people to create "workshops of the future" and realize their full potential as makers. Interactive demonstrations within our tent include easy 3D Printing from Windows 8.1, the touch-friendly programming of TouchDevelop, exciting full-size Boxing Robots, kids creating theatrical animatronic presentations, various microcontrollers, and DIY video games from Project Spark.
