3D Printers

MatterHackers brings the nerd to the Maker Faire

MatterHackers will bring out the big guns at this year’s Maker Faire Bay Area at the San Mateo Events Center on May 20-22nd.

You can high five YouTube’s 3D Printing Nerd Joel Telling and authors Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron will be on the stand to sign copies of their new book: ‘3D Printed Science Projects’. The latest e-NABLE assistive device model and the MasterControl Touch 3D printer controller will also be on display.

MatterHackers will be able to talk interested people through the e-NABLE Hub, which helps people buy the right printer, filament and accessories for any specific project. The online resource now has a vast array of instructional guides, articles and videos, which are fronted by Telling.

Meet the 3D Printing Nerd

The 3D Printing Nerd has amassed quite an audience since launching his Youtube channel last year. More than 25,000 people have subscribed to his channel and his most popular video has more than 100,000 views.

He has joined forces with MatterHackers to help with the instructional videos and now he’ll take centre stage at the Maker Faire. Fans can come and meet Joel at the show to trade a digital high five for a real one.

Horvath and Cameron will sign and give away copies of their book that is based on science and math projects that are designed to be 3D printed. It’s an interesting work for educators and even students might want to share their copy with their school to bring a bit of 3D printed passion to the classroom.

The Hub is a hive of activity

As for the actual products on how, the e-NABLE Hub is a partnership with enablingthefuture.org website to create a comprehensive retail hub that works for both volunteers and educators. The e-NABLE Hub utilises MatterHackers’ expertise and verdicts on the printer, filament and accessories. The educational material will also help people get the most from their equipment.

The MatterControl T10 is an Android-powered touchscreen controller that helps you edit, create and prepare models from your device. It comes with a 10.6” screen with a 1366×720 resolution, which comes with a more powerful processor (2Ghz Octa-Core) for faster slicing.

The T10 is WiFi-enabled and can give you direct access to the Cloud-based library and features an onboard camera for monitoring your print progress on your phone and to share the results of your work with the maker community.
