"Design and Modeling for 3D Printing" (Early Release, Sept 2013), Matthew Griffin's maker-focused guide to design for 3D printing, draws from interviews and collaborations with a wide sampling of the desktop 3D printing community as well as artisans from related disciplines. By offering background, practical projects, techniques, pro tips, and a program for self-guided training, this book will help makers "go native" in 3D and get more out of current and future tools and technologies. Picking up on highlights from the Early Release edition, this talk grants a sneak preview into Griffin's upcoming Make: Book.

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.
Come play with DIY Health Technology made at MITs Little Devices Lab. Devices include: legofluidics, solar instrument sterilization and pop-up biosensor kiosks. We're also bring materials, tools and engineers to help you design your own DIY Health Technology at the Medical Making Help Desk.
Roasting your own coffee is not only economical, it's awesome! We'll cover the basics of home roasting, including affordable equipment to get you started & tips on creating the perfect roast. Ends with samples for the audience and Q&A on the finer points of home roasting.
Cunning Turtle is here to provide Maker Faire with quirky fun memories using their entire inventory of custom Photobooths. Learn how easy and fun it is to build your own or just strike a pose at their many demo booths.
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.
Of all the once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, one of the easiest to prepare for is the creation of your next project. Like every such event, you should have lots of pictures of the process and your only chance is now. After making the novice mistakes of relying on fuzzy photographs of a (temporarily) working circuit with an iPhone 2G and arranging for people to demonstrate a piece without taking lighting into account, Elizabeth wants to spare you the same agonies. Learn why, what, and how to document your next great project. Elizabeth will share opportunities missed, lessons learned, specific tips for documenting your next great project.
I will be presenting a large scale 3D printer that is able to make objects that are roughly 4'-0" x 4'-0" x 5'-0". I will have large scale prints that I have made as examples of what the printer is able to do.

Crafting and making isn't just for objects. You can also make/craft/invent a better personality, a stronger sense of ethics and new habits. I'll talk about how my various experiments (Biblical Living, Extreme Health) changed me. I'll discuss how important the ethos of experimentation is, and how it overlaps with the Maker movement.
In this talk, BeagleBoard.org co-founder Jason Kridner discusses how to use the OpenCV open-source library on the BeagleBone Black open-source computer to implement face detection applications and add elegant mustaches and other new features to your mug. Jason demonstrates his BeagleStache camera application as an example of this application.
