Come To The First Ever Thingiverse Hackathon!


In the most exciting news of the entire week, we are announcing the first ever, and the first annual, MakerBot Thingiverse Hackathon.

Please join us for this two-day event if you are a developer with ideas to share on how we can explode the incredible potential of our website Thingiverse. Come alone, or come as a team. There will be prizes, but the biggest prize is the possibility of building a Thingiverse App that thousands and thousands of people will use.

In January we launched the MakerBot Customizer. It’s an App that allows Thingiverse users to upload not just 3D designs, but 3D designs that can be customized by other users. So any Thingiverse user can build unique things without any kind of 3D design skills. The Customizer has become incredibly popular and there are already hundreds of customizable designs.

Customizer is awesome, and your App should be the next groundbreaking use of the Thingiverse API.

Click here for more details about the event and to get signed up. This is going to be AWESOME.

    It’d be nice to be able to see what other people in my area are thingiverse participants. Like a search by location. I put in Virginia in the search but only got back things. Thanks.

    Since the tickets were free but limited – due to capacity planning one suspects – does a participant need to be at World HQ? Rephrased, can a developer participate remotely?

      TeamTeam! I’ve consulted with the Thingiverse team and the gavel has come down: looks like we can’t accommodate remote developers. You know we would love to have you here in Brooklyn!

    I’m flying in for this one. Looking forward to putting some faces to the names.

    Thingiverse Eventbrite site shows 2 tickets remaining, but Ended, thus availability is N/A.
    Can I reserve one of those two remaining tickets?
