Maker Faire 2014.

Today we made it out to Maker Faire. I didn't actually get that many pictures because there wasn't that much I hadn't seen from the previous years or elsewhere in the Valley. This was the first year I thought Maker had jumped the shark.

3D printing is really pretty main stream now. And Maker Faire is filled with that. Also what they can do has leveled off. For a while they were doing new amazing stuff all the time with all sorts of different materials. They've also stopped coming up with new styles. You have the filament type, gypsum printer, or UV hardened. Now we just have to see which one people embrace. I personally think the UV will win out. You feed it with a product that's the consistency of paint and the UV exposure comes in and hardens it up. These have the best resolution so far. Down to two nanometers.

There wasn't even that many huge sculptures this year. Maybe next year will be better.
