Maker Faire 2012 - part 3.



Shapeways and Cubify continue to be my 3D printing platform of choice. They have the best finished and professional looking product. However, there were a lot more companies this year. And at least one company might move up to the top spot. But I don't have room in this post.

There were so many new players this year, that I'm starting to believe this is going to be a real technology sector.

Shapeways also prints incredibly delicate stuff that moves and is multicolor.





The Cubify van was there. Which I think appeals to your pre-teen market. And girls. It's the best looking 3D printer.

Love these, just wondering how much the print rights are going to be once they are more available.

It's a good question. I know Staples has a service (or will have), but I haven't checked it out. It will be interesting to see how that works out when the big players get involved.
