MakerBot Heads to Chicago!

Posted by on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 in Uncategorized

This weekend, Keith, Nick, and myself are heading from Brooklyn to the Windy City to introduce The MakerBot Replicator to the gathering hoards at The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) convention and host a wild meet up for MakerBot operators and Chicago makers at the hackerspace Pumping Station: One on Friday night.

So if you live in the Greater Chicago Area — or Illinois in general — you have no excuse not to zip over to join us at one of these two events!

    Can’t wait!

    If you are an operator and in the Chicago area, let me know! I know of only one other in the city. It would be great to meet up sometime! Also, check out the What It Is gallery in the Loop. Makerbot artists and I have objects on display 🙂

    I wish I would of known about this sooner, I was just in Chicago last week. I have an old Cupcake CNC (#1515), but I live about 3 hours south of Chicago so I dont think I would be able to make it. I have really been wanting to check out the new Replicator too. Especially now that my makerbot isn’t running like it used to. 🙁

    I am thinking of going this weekend if I can break free. I have a cupcake that I’m trying to upgrade and would like to see what they have to say about the new Replicator.
