4 Awesome 3D Printers & Makers at Maker Faire 2015

One of the places that we think does not get a ton of respect is the rise of 3D printers over the last few years. We definitely know that they are awesome and make prototyping a lot easier than it has ever been. By doing that it has allowed some people that would have never entered the startup world to make some pretty amazing things. Additionally getting them into the hands of kids will have an insanely positive impact on future makers and builders. Now we not know much about the intricate details of 3D printing but we can usually spot a good product when we see one. Over the past week, we have been weeding through the makers page for Makers Faire and these are the 4 3D printers and millers that we really thought were special. Enjoy and check out some of our favorite gadgets at Makers Faire!

Othermill

The Othermill is a portable, precise desktop CNC mill that allows you to create 2D and 3D objects out of durable materials, such as wood, metal, and plastic, using digital designs. We believe that regular people should be able to use professional tools, so we’ve designed easy-to-use software and provided the tools and materials you need to get started. Learn More Here!
 

FABtotum

The FABtotum is a 3D multi-purpose personal fabrication device. Print, Cut, Mill, Scan, Manipulate. Rinse and repeat. A seamless interaction between the physical and digital world. The FABtotum allows low cost personal fabrication without compromises. Finding the right conditions where you can have both decent subtractive and additive manufacturing in one small cube is not an easy task. We think we reached a good compromise between speed precision and strength thanks to unconventional movement transmission methods and structural solutions. Learn More Here!
