MakerBot and Syfy Channel Announce Thingiverse Partnership
During last week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the Syfy Channel made designs from their newest show, The Expanse, available on MakerBot Thingiverse. Syfy is the first major television network to share exclusive content on this platform. As the Internet’s largest 3D printing community, MakerBot Thingiverse is the ideal platform for Syfy Labs to give fans access to printable files from their favorite Syfy shows.
During CES, Syfy featured a MakerBot Replicator equipped with the new Smart Extruder+, which 3D printed various models based on Syfy’s show, The Expanse. Syfy’s partnership with MakerBot is the first step for Syfy to expand their science fiction content from the television format into new territories of technology, ultimately allowing viewers to bring physical content to their homes.
The Rocinante is a state of the art Martian fighter, salvaged from the Donnager.
The Canterbury is the giant ice freighter which plays a central and igniting role in the narrative of The Expanse (we’re not saying what because of spoilers).
The Knight is a shuttle on the Canterbury, which characters use to investigate a mysterious distress beacon that kicks off the narrative.
