make coin e1394314601879 Calling All Austin Makers! SXSW 3D Printed Scavenger Hunt

This rare coin of legend was hidden away long ago by 3DaGoGo.com and MAKE magazine. Rumor has it that the bearer can enter a contest to win amazing prizes!

MAKE@SXSW 2014

If you’re an Austin maker, come on down to SXSW Create, it’s FREE and open to the public. Visit us at the MAKE booth, check out our Homegrown Drones and win some cool prizes!

To inject a little maker flavor into SXWS 2014 3DaGoGo and MAKE have teamed up to create a 3D printed scavenger hunt (with a little hardware help from Austin makers ATX Hackerspace, who leant 3DaGoGo their original Replicator, Thanks ATX!) and are stashing over 300 Makey coins around SXSW event center this weekend.

As the coins are discovered on-site they can be redeemed for prizes at the 3DaGoGo booth located at Create portion of SXSW.  MAKE has donated a variety of prizes including gift cards to the Shed, drones, books and a few kits.

Anna Kaziunas France

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.

Find her on her personal site, Twitter, , and Facebook.
