13 Incredible Creations


13 Incredible Creations at the Inside 3D Printing Show

3D printing has become a valuable tool for tech-savvy artists and designers, and this year MecklerMedia, organizer of the Inside 3D Printing conferences that take place in various cities, had this artistic side front and center.

Alongside the Inside 3D Printing New York show that’s been held for the past several years in the Javits Center is the 3D Print Design Show, which fills an additional room and effectively doubles the size of the show. It features 3D-printed works by sculptors, jewelers, toymakers, and even musical instrument makers. A 3D Print Fashion Show was also held Thursday night.

That said, there was plenty of room for the 3D printers themselves. Old favorites like Stratasys, MakerBot, and 3D Systems were back, as was FormLabs, creater of the Form 1+ stereolithography 3D printer. EnvisionTEC brought its own line of stereolithography 3D printers to the show this year, and M3D showed off The Micro, the cutest miniature 3D printer you’d ever hope to see.

There were 3D scanners as well. Artec manufactures and sells the Artec Shapify Booth, which it sees as the 21st Century equivalent of the photo booth, a way of creating a souvenir figurine to commemorate weddings, graduations, or other events.

Staples and the UPS store were on hand to tell people how they are integrating 3D printing into their operations. Staples sells 3D printers and supplies online and offers 3D-printing services in a limited number of stores. UPS has also added 3D printing services in nearly 100 of its outlets.

There have always been some artists with their wares on display at Inside 3D Printing, but including a design show along with the display of 3D printing hardware adds a new dimension to the event, and shows off some wonderful creations. But of all the things on exhibit, one item stood out as the most wicked-cool: the 3D-printed piezoelectric violin from Monad Studio (above). If that’s the shape of classical music to come, we’re all ears. Check out the slideshow to what else was on offer.

3D printed movie and video game prop

I Stumbled Upon a 3D Printed Movie and Video Game Prop Wonderland

Here at the Inside 3D Printing show in New York City, I stumbled upon a treasure trove of 3D-printed movie props, printed on standard consumer printers, and I never wanted to leave.

The creations come from My Mini Workshop in London, an intensive 10-week program for learning 3D printing, which just kicked off for the first time ever in NYC. I was annoying and bugged some innocent passersby to snap pictures and nabbed a few pictures of my own. These. Things. Are. Awesome.

MacklerMedia’s NYC Event



‘World’s Largest Pure 3D Printing Show’ – MacklerMedia’s NYC Event is HUGE

The city that never sleeps may just be on the verge of becoming the 3D printing capital of the world. This week, MecklerMedia launched their much anticipated 3D Print Week NY event, bringing companies and individuals from all around the globe to the Big Apple in what has be building up to be one of, if not the, largest 3D printing events in history.

The city-wide event, which launched Monday, April 13th with SOLS Martini Monday includes individual events being held by various companies within New York City, as well as MecklerMedia’s own Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo, and their 3D Print Design and Fashion Shows which are taking place at the Javits Convention Center in Manhattan. As a co-producer of these MecklerMedia events, 3DPrint.com had a feeling that this year’s show would not only be one of the company’s largest 3D printing events ever, but that it could potentially become the world’s largest event moving forward.


“As of an hour ago (10:00 AM ET), [we’ve had] 11,100 pre-registered guests, with 53 countries represented [and] 44 U.S. states — Largest pure 3D printing show in terms of attendance worldwide.”

With all eyes on 3D printing this week, thanks to the Inside 3D Printing Conference as well as the 3D Print Design Show and 3D Print Fashion Show by MecklerMedia which officially kick off tomorrow morning, it is no surprise that most of the 3D printing stocks have been trading up considerably today. At the time this article was written, shares of Stratasys (NASDAQ:SSYS) were trading up an astounding 6.29%, while 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD) was up 6.06%, and Materialise (NASDAQ:MTLS) was trading up 2%. All three companies happen to have a huge presence at this year’s event, and the world seems to be taking notice.  Coincidence?  Probably not!


With over 11,000 people who have pre-registered for the MecklerMedia events, this will certainly be one heck of a show, one which we at 3DPrint.com are excited to be a part of. It’s not too late to get tickets for the any of these shows, but hurry up because they are going fast.


For those of you who do attend, be sure to stop by the 3DPrint.com booth, located in the 3D Printing Conference section, for a chance to meet some of our writers.

Will you be attending this event? Be sure to check in and discuss what you saw in the 3D Print Week NY forum thread on 3DPB.com.
