3D Photo Booth

Exhibit

In conjunction with the project named Photographic Phantograms we intend to set up a 3D photo booth to demonstrate various 3D photography & post production techniques.







The Future of 3D Printing

Presenter

Recreation of last years overwhelmingly successful Panel discussion lead by Autodesk's Jesse Harrington Au. This Panel will include representatives from 3D Hubs, iMaterialise, Sculpteo, Shapeways and MakerBot. We will be addressing where we are since last years original talk as well as where we are going in the next year. The topics will be largely based on material science and how the cloud is affecting how 3D printing is becoming more accessible. Each panelist will be given a short amount of time to address each question followed up by some time for audience Q+A.




Autodesk

Exhibit

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?



Afinia

Exhibit

Afinia sells the award-winning H-Series Desktop 3D Printer, which was named by Make Magazine as "Best Overall Experience", "Easiest To Set Up" and "Easiest To Use". The Afinia has an industry-leading 1-year warranty and real, live, honest-to-goodness telephone support.


Deezmaker 3D Printers

Exhibit

Deezmaker manufactures the popular and robust Bukobot 3D Printer and Bukito Portable 3D Printer starting at $699. We pride ourselves in making quality products. We were the first walk-in retail 3D printer store and hackerspace on the west coast providing 3D printers, 3D printing services, classes and 3D printing supplies to the Los Angeles area.


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.

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!
