Microsoft Store Events | 3D Printed Games Getting Hot

Thingiverse Superstars to Speak in Seattle
3D printing is fueling a creative revolution in gaming, and MakerBot is helping innovators like Arian Croft (a.k.a. DutchMogul) and Emmett Lalish lead the charge.
Arian is a member of the company Ill Gotten Games, which recently created a fully 3D-printable game called Pocket Tactics. He decided the best way to find role-playing games, board games, and tabletop games that meet his high standards is to design them himself, and he uses a MakerBot® Replicator® 2 Desktop 3D Printer to develop and make his pieces.
Emmett is an ultra creative engineer, artist, and innovator with a doctorate in aerospace controls. His designs have been featured in issue 1.4 of Libre Graphics Magazine, and in an exhibition at The Luminary called Recently Possible: Objects of the Future . He joined Microsoft’s new 3D printing group in August. His job is now to make 3D printing easier for everyone.
Spark Your ImaginationIf you’re in Seattle this Saturday, 10/26, stop by the Microsoft Store at University Village at 5 p.m. to hear Arian and Emmett speak about the role of 3D printing in game design and engineering. It just might inspire you to start making the games you’ve always wanted to play!
