We want to extend our gratitude to the sponsors that are making this year’s Maker Faire KC possible!
ShopBot: This company was founded by a maker himself in Durham, North Carolina. Ted Hall, a professor of neuroscience at Duke University, set out to create an affordable computerized cutting tool. 17 years later, Shopbot’s digital fabrication tools are carving out the future of prototyping, production, manufacturing, grassroots ‘making’ and education. The company was created to make the power and precision of CNC technology affordable by individual ‘makers’ and small to midsize manufacturers. Rather than having to invest $100K or more to use CNC technology, ShopBot Tools enables the use of digital fabrication with an investment of as little as $5000. Shopbot is the innovator in affordable digital fabrication. Check out their product line here: http://shopbottools.com/products.htm
