This last weekend, bus-loads of makers descended on the New York Hall of Science in Queens to attend the 2016 World Maker Faire.
Tormach has been growing a lot over the last few years, and with that growth has come an expanding customer-base and outside knowledge of our machines. A number of media outlets picked up the announcement of our PCNC 440 last year, we made appearances on ABC’s BattleBots this summer, and now a Tormach mill has emerged in a couple of articles in the Wall Street Journal.
Jesse Hayes is the co-founder of a video game company, S2 Games, and owner of Puzzlebox Entertainment, but he’s also an artist and maker when it comes to movie props.
We’re all makers. Everybody that has touched, or been inspired to use, a CNC machine is a maker, and the community is growing. By the end of summer 2016, Tormach will have attended at least four Maker Faires around the U.S., and there are other Tormach enthusiasts that are involved other Maker Faires around the world.
Last week was quite busy around here. We spent a week meeting some of our customers in the San Francisco and Northern California region, and hearing about how they use their machines building everything from BattleBots to incubating start-up businesses.
Madison Mini Maker Faire
Tormach is hitting the road for a number of awesome events around the country, starting in our own backyard at the Madison Mini Maker Faire in Madison, WI. On Saturday May 14, we’ll be making an appearance at the Monona Terrace in downtown Madison to show off the PCNC 440.
