Maker Faire New York – it’s a wrap!

In continuation with our coverage of Maker Faire New York, check out the photos below! Maker Faire is always a good time, and this year's festival in New York was no exception. Tinkercad, Instructables, 123D Circuits, and more attracted new makers, long time designers, families, and guests from all over the place to the Autodesk booth. It was wonderful to meet such diverse groups of people all delighting in the joys of 3D printing and making things.


Our troop of Peter the Penguins were especially popular!


Community Manager Andy Taylor showed some awesome live demos of Tinkercad, going with the theme of DC Comics - below you can see Peter the Penguin being transformed into The Flash!


Thanks to everyone for another great year! It was wonderful getting to meet so many of you, from educators to long time Autodesk users, and we can't wait to see you again next year.

Making It Official With 3D Hubs

Every so often two companies meet, and magic happens. This was definitely the case when we met 3D Hubs, the world’s largest 3D print network. We already had so much in common: a love of 3D printing, awesome users and community members, plus a shared mission to provide easy access to a technology that gives you the ultimate form of creativity.
That’s why it made perfect sense to integrate the 3D Hubs 3D print network into Autodesk 123D, to make it faster and easier than ever for 3D printing enthusiasts everywhere to turn the designs they design into physical products. The average delivery time of products printed via 3D Hubs is less than two days - five times faster than the industry standard.
We are committed to offering you the best in 3D printing services, so try them out through our site now, and let us know how it goes. You can also come meet them (and us!) to learn more in person this Friday at a celebration mixer in San Francisco at Autodesk’s One Market office. Sign up here to reserve your spot.
Mixer Date and Venue

For our more hands on friends, check out the workshop we will be running with 3D Hubs this Friday as well - but you better hurry; there are only 5 spots left!

3D Hubs + Autodesk 123D = Party Time (And Workshop)

SXSW Recap…but wait, there’s more!


It's been an exciting weekend at SXSW so far, full of enthusiastic makers and exciting keynotes by Autodesk's very own CEO, Carl Bass. Even R2D2 stopped by to join in on the fun. 

If you weren't able to catch Carl's keynote on the Robot Revolution, have no fear, he will be back on stage today, Sunday March 9th from 3:30- 4:30pm, to speak with Shapeways CEO, Pete Weijmarshausen, about the future of 3D printing. 








We've had lots of great guests stop by the Atmel #TechOnTour truck, giving us the chance to learn more about the projects they're interested in, and of course send them on their way with pockets full of our 3D printed bottle openers. 

We'll be hanging out with the Atmel folks through Sunday, and checking out all the awesome things going at SXSW (3D printed Oreos, anyone?) for a few more days after that. 

Remember, you can follow us on Twitter at @autodesk123D for the most up to date info about where we are and what we're doing.

London 3D Print Show all wrapped up!

Thanks to everyone that came out to the 3D Print Show this year!  We met so many great people and companies, and we hope to stay in touch until next year.  These pictures show only some of the great things we saw, let us know if you you saw something we didn't.

A huge thanks to the show organizers and technicians for their work, we'll see you in Paris!
