Fuel 3D Technologies Ltd.

Exhibit

Fuel 3D Technologies, developer of 3D scanning solutions, will be demonstrating its ground-breaking 3D scanner at Maker Faire. Throughout the show, visitors to the company’s stand will be able to find out more about 3D scanning and receive a free 3D scan of their own face. They will then be able to access their file online for 3D printing or to experiment with other applications. In addition, the Fuel 3D scanner will be present on the Feetz stand at Maker Faire to showcase our recent collaboration with the developer of custom fit footwear. Why should I care? The world is getting very excited about 3D and 3D printing, but people are struggling to understand how they can get the content they need for these applications. The Fuel 3D scanner has been developed to allow anyone to generate high-quality 3D models from real-life objects. Fuel 3D has developed an affordable handheld 3D scanner that delivers high resolution shape and color capture for a range of 3D modeling applications, such as 3D printing, as well as on-screen applications like 3D art, animation and game development. The scanner’s ability to accurately capture color 3D models of the face is ideally suited to the rapidly growing trend of personalization.

Taktia

Exhibit

Taktia will be demonstrating our first-of-its-kind handheld CNC machine. Attendees will be able to try out our working prototype, which is the size of a handheld router and can be used to precisely cut shapes of any size out of wood, plastic, or sheet metal, directly from a digital design. How does it work? The user loads a 2D shape that they want to cut, and then positions the tool manually in the approximate area of the tool path. The tool then uses a camera to track where it is, and can adjust its own position to move the cutting device to be exactly on the plan. To cut a shape, the user just approximately follows the desired path by following graphics on an onboard screen, and the tool constantly self-adjusts to follow the plan perfectly. You can see a YouTube video of the tool here: http://youtu.be/-UmL7xZZSUk

Making Toys with Maker Tech and Selling Them: Tales from the Frontline

Presenter

I'll talk about using 3D printing, textile printing, laser cutting and games to make customised toys, and how we brought Makies through traditional toy safety certification and got them onto real shelves at retail.
I'll talk about sales, margins, materials, design techniques and software, pitfalls, things to avoid, where the opportunity lies: make it quite a How-To.


The Touch Board: Hacking Kickstarter to turn a project into a product

The Other Singularity, The Impact of DIY on Product Design

Presenter

The DIY attitudes of the punk rock '70s have become the make movement of this century. Adhocracies are rising and having a real impact on the world of professional capital D design and bell curve products. This talk will focus on how this movement is impacting clients, users and the work.
The talk explores the credo Think by Making, Deliver by Demo and examines a futurist provocation called the other singularity. This talk will be filled with humor, energy, examples of things made both serious and provocative.
