Dimension Learning, a Harlem-based after school program, had this in mind when they created the Bot Enabled Task Accomplishment (B.E.T.A.) Challenge. Students were tasked with designing and 3D printing tools that would help robots get through obstacle courses.

MakerBot Sponsors Baauer’s “Aa” Listening Party


The wait is over. Brooklyn producer Baauer is back at it with his first full-length album, Aa. In partnership with MakerBot and Soylent, Baauer hosted his album listening party in New York City on March 25th. The event was bustling with industry insiders, who sipped on Soylent while listening to Baauer’s freshest sounds. A personal fan of 3D printing, Baauer enlisted MakerBot to enhance the space with over one hundred 3D prints of the Aa album art. The prints lined bar shelves, tabletops, and DJ area, and were also included in gift bags. With the high-energy sounds of “Day Ones” and “GoGo!” playing in the background, the Aa prints became the perfect accent pieces for this uniquely edgy atmosphere.
