Simpsons And Futurama Creator Matt Groening Uses A MakerBot!

Posted by on Monday, June 25, 2012 in Uncategorized


Whenever we meet MakerBotters out in the wild, we remind them that they are in excellent company. Here’s one more for the list. Matt GroeningDavid X. Cohen, and Patric Verrone, the executive producers of Futurama, have a MakerBot in their office! Watch the video above to hear how much they love using it.

Thingiverse fans probably already know that Futurama is a popular theme for designs. So how freaking cool is it to find out that they, including the creator of The Simpsons, use a MakerBot on the daily? And in their downtime, they’re scanning each other with a Kinect.

Let me ask you: do you think these guys should have a Thingiverse page?

    If they had a Thingiverse page I would so buy one of these Replicators!
    Wait…. I already have one.

    […] Groening and David X. Cohen, the creators of Futurama, apparently have a Makerbot in their office running all day every day. No word yet on if they’ll be getting even further into open-source […]

    They should definitely have their own page, the Simpsons and Futurama are about as classic as you can get when taking about animation. I was recently watching a Simpsons episode and mentioned how much of the backgrounds are done in 3D.
