First Episode of MakerBot TV!

Posted by on Wednesday, September 7, 2011 in Uncategorized

MakerBot Industries has a brand new online video series hosted by ME! Annelise Jeske – MakerBot’s Video Superstar! And it is AWESOME!

Let me take you on a virtual adventure to an Afro Punk head-scanning party, watch how we MakerBot the heads of Angelo Moore (of Fishbone) and comedian Reggie Watts, get some tips and tricks for using ReplicatorG, and have some fun with a few Thingiverse creations. You may or may not also get to hear some of yoda’s wisdom and watch me swing a sword around.

Special Thanks to: Tony Buser for the use of Bobble Head Bob, 2ROBOTGUY for his alphabet design. And all these great folks for the use of their music: Doctor Popular, 8-bit Ninjas, memotone, Goto80 and Kevin MacLeod.

    I was having Robot Hospital withdrawls! Glad some video love is back. Would love to see a short section on how to use Multiply and also how to lay out a plate with Multiple objects in a future episode.

    Is this being done with 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) machines?

      No, just MakerBot 3D printers!

    Cute, but in my world that sword stuff would just get you killed. ( I’m currently an epee C2010 ). Wind up for your thrust and I guarantee to get you with your arm back.

    Any change of a down loadable rss feed.

    Then I can watch MakerBot TV on a tv.

    Boo! It won’t play on Google Chrome… Or an iPhone for that matter…
    However the video was great and your host is mega cute. Looking forward to more (Hopefully not watched on ie)

    Scratch that, Murphy’s law… Google Chrome is just fine.

    What’s the handheld scanner being used? – surprised you didn’t want to show off the MakerBot 3D Scanner kit.

    Totally fabulous video. Thought the swordfighting was just marketing, but the moves prove that makerbot is in the biz to do serious damage. I love this station!
