3DP in 30 Seconds (unforgiving video stills version)

On Feb. 10, shortly after arriving in NYC for the 3D PrintShow to cover the fashion and art, I headed to CNBC’s Englewood, NJ studios for a taping of a 30 second segment on 3D Printing. This was part of a new online format called “30 Seconds to Know“, which breaks down a complex technical topic in 30 seconds.

My Nervous System custom Kinematics necklace “27624” gets a brief cameo.

It was a pleasant experience, but brutal in terms of content coverage, as the 30 second time limit was strictly enforced. I had to collapse the entire world of professional additive manufacturing to desktop 3D printing into half a minute. We did a lot of editing on the fly and this CNBC video is the result.

Although it glosses over all the details, I think it came out well. I focused on the parts of the process that occur with any type of printer and any method of printing: take a 3D model, slice it into layers, print it.

There’s something beautiful about extreme simplicity.

Digital Fabrication Editor of Maker Media.

She runs the digital fabrication hardware testing for Make:. If you’re a vendor who would like to submit a tool for review (3D printer, CNC, laser cutter, fab software etc.), contact her directly at: anna [@] makermedia [dot] com.

She’s the section editor for Make: Skill Builder. Make: celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your will. But — In order to really tweak and bend something, you need to understand it! If you’d like to write a tightly focused piece on a core maker skill in science / engineering / craft / art / architecture / robotics / fabrication etc. (whatever) that you’d like to teach to other makers — and have Make: work with you to illustrate for magazine publication — let her know!

She’s very interested in your ideas for practical digital fabrication focused books — anything that turns codes into things — hardware and software.

She’s also the Dean of the global Fab Academy program, the co-author of Getting Started with MakerBot, compiled the Make: 3D Printing book and ran the 2015 and 2014 3D Printer Shootout Weekend testing events.

She likes things that are computer-controlled, parametric, and open source — preferably all three.
