Autodesk + Electroninks + Cricut, a Collaboration

Maker Faires are special places where people gather to push the limits of creative expression and get hands-on with new technology.  Friendships are forged and collaborations between makers strengthen the growing movement.  Last weekend's Maker Faire in New York only reinforced this.Lining up at the gate for Maker Faire Rome 2014


In the next days and weeks keep reading our posts about cool stuff we saw at Maker Faire New York and the upcoming Maker Faire in Rome.


We wanted to start by showing the combined technology of 123D Circuits' new Circuit Scribe simulator (screen shot below), Electronink's conductive-silver pens, and Cricut's newest machine: the Explore.  The result was a working electrical circuit – in just five minutes.  (video below)

Check out the screen shot of the new Circuit Scribe virtual editor below – it's the first step in the process.

And here it is in action.  You can even hear Maker Faire in the background!
 
We'll keep collaborating and experimenting until we're ready to release the whole process as an export feature of 123D Circuits to Cricut.  We encourage you to try new things too.

You're reading about electronics but have you tried our FREE app that converts photographs into 3D models?  It's called 123D Catch and it's available for iOS, Android, PC, and in-browser if you're a Mac user.

Circuit Scribe Makes Sound (Demo)

A few weeks ago the folks at Electroninks sent us a few Circuit Scribe kits, the same one's they'd just delivered a ton of to their Kickstarter backers.  They also sent us a few extra modules... like a motor, buzzer, light sensors, and a "blinker" (more on that later).


We posted our first unboxing video and a number of people wrote back with questions, so we made another video today to show how the buzzer and blinker modules work.  Have a look at the video below and for the full fourteen minute unboxing video and ALL the info you could ever want - check out that blog.
