Photos from MakerBot Booth at CES 2013 #3dthursday
The CES crew from MakerBot sent us over some photos (full flickr set here) from their CES 2013 experience to share for #3dthursday, along with this note:
Last week, MakerBot traveled to CES for the fourth time and went bigger and better than ever before. No less than thirty MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printers were running at any given time. The booth was packed with people the entire show with many turning out to see the new MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer and learn about the latest changes to Thingiverse. The booth also featured several amazing pieces by artist Cosmo Wenman.
