3D Printer World Expo

The second 3D Printer World Expo in Burbank, California, is on! The two-day convention ends today (January 31).

Yesterday I saw technology, art, authors,vendors, fashion, and friends alike. I looked at 3D scanning, art pieces, a Touch 3D stylus demo, sculpting demos, metal casting, laser resin printing, giant (9.5’ tall!) printers, comic art designers, and metal printing! I even got to talk to Bridgette Mongeon, an amazing 3D Printing/Sculpting artist, with whom I Skyped into a presentation she made awhile back.

Color Visualizer


If your New Year’s resolution for 2015 is to be more hands-on with technology, I’d recommend the “Color Visualizer” kit by Quin Etnyre (Qtechknow) and Makershed as a great place to start.   It’s fun to play with and an amazingly simple kit to assemble, consisting of 11 parts. 

This great beginner/learn-to-solder kit has quick payoffs. Everything except the batteries came in the bag.  I found it very easy to figure out where all the parts went.  I’ve included instructions as part of my kit review to help you get going.
