Last year World Maker Faire in New York played host to more than 800 Makers and 85,000 attendees. This year's celebration of creativity and DIY ingenuity was just as big.
Visitors had the opportunity to build their own micro derby car with the help of the Dremel 8050 Micro cordless rotary tool
and the 3D Idea Builder
. We were excited to not only demonstrate the power of 3D printing, but also how to bring creations to life. Thanks to a partnership with HP, attendees were able to digitally manipulate their derby cars with the incredible HP Sprout
. By combining the Sprout and the 3D Idea Builder, we created an easy to use, all-in-one 3D print-and-play solution. Your only limitation is your own boundless creativity.
We also had two inspiring Makers on hand to give live demonstrations while showing off the power of our Dremel tools. Paul Niemeyer created some incredible wooden signs and Hank Robinson wowed attendees by engraving car hoods.
In addition, we announced the much-anticipated winners of the Dremel Maker-in-Residence contest. These Makers, who embody the passion, enthusiasm and DIY expertise of the Maker movement, will have the opportunity to collaborate directly with Dremel and take home an amazing assortment of prizes including the Dremel 3D Idea Builder and Sprout by HP.
