CES 2014 | The MakerBot 3D Ecosystem Blossoms

It was a great week for MakerBot at the International CES 2014 in Las Vegas. It began with a media conference, an event of big companies. Reporters were expecting MakerBot (est. 2009) to release a Replicator 3, but rather we unveiled three brand new MakerBot Replicator 3D printers, three new apps, along with a Digital Store. The audience oohed and aahed, and reviews were fantastic.

The MakerBot stall was beautiful, with the atmosphere of a shop rather than typical trade show space. Thousands of people got encounters. We were delighted to connect with people eager to learn more in addition to so many intriguing makers.

Made On Your Spot
MakerBot attracted a crack team of designers from the MakerBot Studio to explore CES and make 3D accessories for businesses that might be able to use them. The results, Produced in CES, showcased the group’s quick-thinking design abilities along with the rapid prototyping capabilities of a MakerBot desktop 3D printer.

Connecting With the MakerBot Community
It was amazing for us to meet folks who have been using MakerBot products to create prototypes, incredible 3D models, and more. Their gratitude humbled us, and inspired to continue our mission to create products that enable people to make their dreams come true.

We were moved by companies and individuals who had products with MakerBot 3D printers and won awards of their own.
