MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
The first 2016 Makeathon was a huge success! Thank you to all the participants. Let's keep the conversation going here!
I think that we should expand the Makeathon to more cities, like New Orleans and Houston. Texas is so big in the robotics and engineering fields.
Our Summer 2016 MakerBot Makeathons have officially come to close. We wanted to send out a huge thank you to all of the participants, we still can't believe the quality of projects that was created in each of the cities!
If you haven't already, take a look at the other entries in this group and leave some feedback on the other educators' project plans.
We also wanted to say another congratulations to each of our winners!! Check out their amazing projects here:
