MakerBot Expands 3D Ecosystem and Transforms the Way You Think of/in 3D

Lawton also noted, “We know there is a lot of hype around 3D printing. We also know that 3D printing is not plug and play. It can be challenging and that is why a major emphasis is on creating a MakerBot 3D Ecosystem that helps make 3D printing easier and more accessible. At CES, we want to ground the hype and showcase how educators, businesses and real users have incorporated MakerBot 3D printing into their daily work and lives.”

MakerBot’s CES booth experience illustrates how real users are incorporating 3D printing into their workflow, saving time and money, and inspiring a whole new generation of innovators. MakerBot CES booth partners include:

  • GE FirstBuild: Learn about the power of Real-Time Prototyping and innovative ways to rethink the traditional manufacturing process by incorporating 3D printing. At the MakerBot CES booth, meet two FirstBuild engineers and Natarajan (Venkat) Venkatakrishnan, the director of FirstBuild, and hear their vision for using 3D printing to transform the traditional design and manufacturing of products.
  • Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia: MakerBot’s CES experience will feature a firsthand look at how 3D printing transforms the design process for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and helps bring designs to life and products to market faster and more affordably.
