The personal fabrication revolution is well underway. The rise of consumer 3D printing hardware and services has fundamentally changed the landscape of producing, sharing and selling “things." From home decor and jewelry to robots and food, people are now equipped with the tools to print almost anything.

Join Huge along with Makerbot, Shapeways and GothamSmith in a panel discussion on how 3D printing will drive the creative and consumer community. Our discussion will focus on the future of this technology and how the easing of technical and financial barriers will impact various industries.

Shapeways is a start-up that uses 3D printing to help people make, buy and sell anything they want.

Makerbot Industries is a New York-based company specializing in producing open source hardware, specifically 3D printers.

GothamSmith is an online retailer specializing in 3D printed jewelry and accessories.

    Hi to Everyone,
    This is David Paul form Australia. I would like to share some of my experience about 3D printer with this community. Shapeways and Makerbot are the amazing technology for 3D printers. Similar to those brands, some valuable 3D printer companies are available. The notable company is that 3Dstuffmakers http://www.3dstuffmaker.com/. 3Dstuffmaker follows the same technology in which makerbot and shapeways has been using. They offer printers at very affordable price than other brands and it has large print area.

    Wish there had been a bit of an overview to 3d printing--i know time was limited and the audience familiarity was varied. Also would have liked to hear more about creative uses rather than making parts for things that break. If that's the discussion, then you really need to bring liability into the picture. Thought the question about trademark/rights was glossed over. Some of the samples were interesting.

    Very interesting area. It's amazing to consider home and distributed on demand production of physical objects.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone. We're are just setting up our New York studio, following our London and Malmö studios, so am keen to meet people and make friends in the UI/UX industry here.
