Tomorrow, I fly out to San Francisco to bring the Scan-A-Rama 3D Portrait Studio to the Bay Area. If you’re attending Maker Faire, please stop by to say hi. We will be in the large 3D printing tent and would love to make a 3D portrait for you.
I’m also presenting Sunday at 1:30pm on the Center Stage so come see my talk “The History and Legacy of Technology as Entertainment“. I’m honored to be sandwiched between Autodesk’s Carl Bass and 3D Robotics’ Chris Anderson!
Last month I did a Makerfaire event for PepsiCo with the agency Sparks & Honey. I made 3D portraits for all the employees there. I’m just sending out the last batch of prints to all the PepsiCo employees we scanned. As a special thank you I’m throwing in these two jumbo blue prints of the guy drinking a Pepsi that I made on my SeeMeCNC Rostock Max delta printer. I think someone will appreciate them!
My lecture from World Makerfaire New York has just gone live- Watch it on YouTube as I talk about my project and the history of technology as entertainment:
Scan-A-Rama 3D Portrait Studio at World Makerfaire New York 2014
We brought some prints of the Makerfaire crew that were scanned last year
We even got to 3D scan Dale Dougherty, Make Founder, as well as much of this year’s crew as well.
A class from Queens College came by- they had built a scanner based on my hardware designs which was also on exhibit
We scanned Steve Wygant and John Oly from SeeMeCNC, whose scans may say something about their relationship… I was an original indieGoGo backer of their Rostock Max campaign and got a kit that never quite turned into a fully operational 3D printer. They took pity on me and generously gave me one of their working floor models at the end of the weekend- Thanks Guys!
Naturally, our scan of them were the first prints made on the Rostock Max machine!
Dale Dougherty, Make Founder
The guys from the NYFD went out to get their full gear to get scanned in. It caused a little stir on the crew’s walkie talkies when they returned carrying hoses!
We even scanned the GhostBusters!
We made a bunch of portraits of couples like my friends Jim and Winnie
A number of dancers happened to come by to pose as well! We’re just starting to dig in and clean up files so there’s ton more to come, but these were definitely a few highlights!
The booth was very well received and won four awards so we were all quite happy! The first two ribbons were for the 3D Printed Luna Park exhibit and the second two were for Scan-A-Rama 3D!

The dust is settling after our triumphant show at the 2014 World Makerfaire New York! It’s been quite a week. Here’s some highlights of the last few days:
Starting Thursday, I began moving the 3D printed Luna Park out of the Coney Island Museum
There were over 300 3D scanned and printed people in this box!
I knew the show was going to be great when I saw our auspicious cart number!
It took all day friday to get the install done
We had a great place at the base of the spiral stairs inside the Hall of Science!
I was very pleased with the dramatic lighting!
Luna Park looked great!
It was nice to get Coney Island USA and the Coney Island Museum some props at Makerfaire too!
I was beaming after receiving the “Best in Class” Award at World Makerfaire New York 2014!
Loading out Sunday night was hectic but ran smoothly
And now Luna Park is safely back in the Coney Island Museum!
Come see us this weekend at World MakerFaire New York, Scan-A-Rama 3-D and 3-D printed Luna Park will be in the lower level of the New York Hall of Science all weekend!
Here I am on the Make Live Stage at NY Maker Faire this weekend to be on Matthey Griffin’s 3D Design Panel. It was a huge honor to join my esteemed colleagues Kacie Hultgren, Todd Blatt, Matt Stultz and Tony Buser there!
