Come One Come All To Maker Faire Detroit!
MakerBot is hitting up another awesome Maker Faire, this time in Detroit. We love going to events because it gives us a chance to show people what our technology and our community are all about. If you have a chance to see us in Detroit this weekend, here’s what you can expect!
***Double Plus Good Announcement: We will indeed be selling MakerBot’s latest machine, The Replicator, during Maker Faire Detroit! Come find us in the Maker Shed for details.***
Saturday @ Noon
Jim, aka “Zheng3”, will be on hand for part of the afternoon to share his adventures creating an open source tabletop wargame with the world on Thingiverse! Join him for a quick talk at noon — and then take him on in a match!
Saturday @ 2:00 p.m.
Mike Moceri will give a quick demo of how he uses a Microsoft Kinect, ReconstructMe, and his MakerBot to quickly scan, clean-up, and print 3D portraits. Many have tried, but Mike is by far “the fastest scan-to-print operator in the Thingiverse.”
Saturday @ 4:30 p.m.
Sign up in advance at the MakerBot Booth to join MakerBot’s Community Manager Matt Griffin on a Capture Session in the Henry Ford Museum. We will be heading out from the booth promptly at 4:30pm to travel through the museum, hunting for interesting pieces of history in the areas that permit photography for personal use. We’ll contribute the object to the Capture Your Town project on Thingiverse by using 123D Catch to create a 3D model and then repairing it using Meshmixer.
Sunday @ 3:00 p.m.
MakerBot Family Portrait! Calling all MakerBot Operators at Maker Faire Detroit. Join us briefly right at 3PM to take a quick family portrait at the MakerBot Booth — quickly followed by some special treats we brought to share with all of the incredible MakerBot Operators in our midsts.
