MakerBot A SkatePark!

Posted by on Monday, June 11, 2012 in Uncategorized

Okay guys – it’s time to get real. This video that you’re about to watch is most assuredly the coolest video I’ve ever made. Seriously. It’s really freaking awesome.

This project was a collaboration (all awesome projects are, aren’t they?) between myself and my associate producer Josh Friedman and a handful of the greatest fingerboarders on the planet – Mike Schneider, Taylor Rosenbauer, Doug Bodkin and Tim Hurley. Josh, who animates the wonderful R.Maker Adventures and moonlights as a 3D designer, designed a bunch of skate ramps in Sketchup and put together the ultimate indoor skatepark which the boarders came in to shred on. And shred they did.

The best part of all this? Now you can MakerBot your own skatepark using the design files on Thingiverse. So make your own park, customize your own ramps, make your own sweet videos and keep on keepin it awesome!

In the latest delivery of everyone’s favorite 3-minute video series about DIY 3d printer kits, I run you through some notable Thingiverse objects, including Renosis’ MakerBot Castle and flower toy, and MakeALot’s amazing pencil holders.  Isaac has some words about a new product, and Matt continues his tutorial series about 3d modeling from a real object…in this case, a squirrel.
