Makerfaire NYC 2014!!

Recommended Posts

Do you guys have cell phones? I love meeting people there - you can text me when you find the Ultimaker booth and I'll run over to meet you.

Interesting! I might try to go

Don't try. Do it. It's amazing. They had about 70,000 people last year. 70,000. I don't know if you can imagine how many people that is. And it wasn't too crowded. This thing is quite large. 70000!

Here's another video teaser - much longer but more details. Pretty much anything that was in 2012 makerfaire came back for 2013 and will probably be there this year also. You can look up which exhibitors are planning to show up.

I heard a new rumor yesterday that there are MORE THAN ONE major announcements to occur at makerFaire NYC. More than one new things will be for sale. So check the UM Store in the days leading up to Sept 20.

Though I haven't heard the rumor, I was thinking TWO things to be exact :D

I have seen Daid being quite busy working on Pink Unicorn. However, I think it's not realistic to expect the new Cura for the MF.

Realistic answering times of the (Europe based) support would be a nice announcement.

I'm also not so sure they will show the UM2 dual extrusion.

I'm not saying anything else (because I like mystery) but do not expect UM2 dual-extrusion. Sorry. But I hate to give off false-hopes in this aspect.

I had the impression in the past that you also like teasing... ;)

So, the heated UM1 bed kit can be taken for sure, I guess. And I could imagine that it is a good moment to switch from the old electronics to the Ultimainboard 2.x.

There might also be something Youmagine-related... and maybe something for connectivity... (remember that the Ultimaker website says something about WiFi-ready for the UM2? However, this would mean Daid kept the development unusually secret... B) )

I'm actually pretty good at that. Sure, I'm not silent about everything, but there is stuff cooking that I have and will not say a word about.

Except someone would promise you life-long chocolate cookies support... ? :lol:

If that gives us up to date secret info over what is going on I can get behind that. Lets start a Daid cookie fund (although Sander seems bribe-able as well :p).

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
