Making, Learning, Collaborating, and 3D Printing in the Community: Dayton Mini Maker Faire

Making, Learning, Collaborating, and 3D Printing in the Community: Dayton Mini Maker Faire

Back in March, when I visited Dayton, Ohio’s resident 3D printing bar, Proto BuildBar, I was told that its employees would be exhibiting at a local school’s STEMfest later that month, and at another educational event this summer: the Dayton Mini Maker Faire. After thoroughly enjoying my visit to STEMfest, I definitely didn’t want to […]

3D Printed Game Boy is a Hit at Maker Faire New York

You never know what you’re going to see at Maker Faire. I’ve attended Maker Faire New York every year since Make Faire came to New York, and it’s been wildly different every year. In fact, due to the ever-changing layout of the event, it’s hard to know where to start first. I’m glad I went both […]

Barnes & Noble to Host Second Annual Mini Maker Faire, Featuring Guests, Workshops, and Tech Fun for All Ages

I was at Barnes & Noble a few weeks ago, and while I spent most of my time staring at all the books I want to buy but have run out of space for on my bookshelves, I took a second to look at XYZprinting’s da Vinci 1.0 Junior 3D printer, which sat in a place of honor […]

We write a lot here at 3DPrint.com about young entrepreneurs, but twelve-year-old Rowan Pritchard may be the youngest businessman we’ve ever encountered in the 3D printing world. The California boy recently completed fifth grade at Mary Collins School at Cherry Valley, and while he has several years before he has to start thinking about summer […]

Make to Care: Use Your Creative Skills to Ease the Lives of People with Disabilities

Make to Care: Use Your Creative Skills to Ease the Lives of People with Disabilities

Some people become makers out of a love for craft, technology and/or self-sufficiency. Others become makers out of sheer necessity – such as Fabio Gorrasi, a father of three whose youngest child, Roberta, suffers from spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). The rare disease, which affects the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord, takes away sufferers’ […]

Maker Faires Are a Big Draw for Kids, Maker Movement Encourages Future Scientists & Engineers

Children may often become desensitized to the classroom experience, grumbling over math and science in general and latching on to the idea that they may want to avoid those lessons because they are perceived as being more challenging, not fun. But have you ever seen a younger student in front of a 3D printer? I […]

PinJig Makes Soldering PCBs a Breeze

One of the things I love about 3D printing is how it’s empowering makers and inventors to come up with new devices that would have been prohibitively expensive to prototype and develop otherwise. Many of these new products would not have seen the light of day, and in fact sometimes the production models are 3D […]

If you’ve been following 3DPrint.com recently, you may have noticed that I’m really excited about the rapid advancements, technological and otherwise, that are happening in my hometown. I may have a bit of a natural bias, so it’s always nice to get confirmation from outsiders that yes, Cleveland is doing really well when it comes […]

Robot Factory’s Desktop Electroplating CopperFace System Debuts at Maker Faire Rome

While it is gaining ground in the automotive and aerospace industries, metal 3D printing is still prohibitively expensive for most makers. There are of course several 3D printing service providers who offer limited metal 3D printing services, but the available options are typically only ideal for specific types of jewelry or smaller sized objects, and […]

Barnes and Noble. Just those three words elicit a sense of comfort. You can almost smell the new books, feel your eager feet resting on the escalator, and summon up that luxurious feeling of browsing and turning crisp, white pages for hours on a Saturday. This is our idea of a good time. And the […]

In just a few short years Maker Faire NY has transformed from a stepchild to Maker Faire San Francisco to flagship status, perhaps even becoming a larger festival than the original. And 3D printing played a large role in that transformation. Those first couple years saw an abundance of laser cut wood hobbyist machines, back […]

With all the 3D printer projects on Kickstarter these days touting almost unbelievable features and prices it’s easy to become a little skeptical. When some of those companies take exceedingly long to deliver on backer rewards or fail to deliver at all and go silent to backer requests for updates–or even commit outright fraud–it certainly […]

While crowdfunding launches can be challenging, hard work, and a total crapshoot for many, we see a lot of really successful and downright impressive campaigns happening for innovative 3D printing companies today. It would be hard to compare any, however, with the staggering success of the M3D Micro, which was made available on Kickstarter last […]

This Week's 3D Hubs Events Celebrate 3D Modeling, Scanning, & Printing Technologies

Events this week held at various 3D Hubs locations around the world include everything from introductions to workshops–to parties! This last I find particularly appropriate, as three of these events are held on my birthday, tomorrow, but somehow I get the feeling that they’re celebrating technology more than anything else. From San Francisco to the […]

There are a number of 3D printing contests and challenges going on around the world at any given time, but in the past month there was one that was particularly special. It doesn’t hold that place because of the amount of the prizes or the big names that were involved. Rather, it is of interest […]

3D Printed 'Little Red Dot' Zoetrope Brings 19th Century Fun to 2015 MakerFaire Singapore

We’ve already demonstrated that the Victorians knew how to have a good time. And that the fun doesn’t have to remain in the 19th century, but they have been improved upon. The stereoscopic viewer, for example, that was once created from wood is now a collapsible 3D printed device that fits into an Altoids tin. The […]

“One night, while working late in her makeshift lab, Quin finally figured out how she could make her way to Earth – teleportation through a 3D printer! She finished typing her code, hugged Boon, her lovable pet awoo, hit ‘Enter,’ and her experiment was unleashed…” Quin is no ordinary doll, for sure. While many can boast that […]
