Making Chips at Maker Faire

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 was there to show off our PCNC 440, which was unveiled at the same even last year, and we got to see quite an array of projects and maker tools. The booth next door specialized in molding materials for masks and costume prosthetics. Of course, there was an array of 3D printers and customizable PCB companies. There were several FIRST Robotics teams on-site to show off their builds from last season. There were all kinds of art sculptures and kinetic activities for kids and adults – plus the occasional musical break-out. We even had several customers stop by the booth, one of which (ReDeTec) also had a booth at the faire and is using their PCNC 770 to make a plastic recycling unit for more sustainable 3D printer filament.

We’re already looking forward to the next Maker Faire in San Francisco next spring, but we always love to see what Tormach owners are making. Send your projects and machining pictures to marketing@tormach.com, and you may just see them pop up in the blog!
