About This File

Ever wanted to know what makes the Ultimaker robot tick?

I was inspired by illustrations such as this one:

The "maker globe" was created using a NASA satellite image maps of lights on the earth at night in order to generate the gears.  I assumed that the brighter areas on the map would have a greater density of Makers, so there are more gears populating those areas on the globe.  The lines in the oceans were derived from images of shipping lanes.  I wanted to distill the idea of Makers working together and ideas traveling freely across the globe.

I will be sharing these models for everyone to enjoy on youmagine shortly.
