MakerBot Creates Made In… CES -- #MadeinCES

MakerBot Wows CES Exhibitors with Custom 3D Printed Accessories and Components for Standout Product Introductions

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- 2014 may well be the year of the 3D printer at CES, and it may just be the year that the world sees a drastic change in the way it thinks about manufacturing.  MakerBot, the global leader in desktop 3D printing, is leading that shift to items being made in the U.S., made in offices, made in hospitals, labs, schools and in homes.  As part of a larger "Made In…" movement, MakerBot is launching its "Made in CES" program at CES.

The MakerBot Made in CES program is a collaboration with the award-winning digital marketing agency R/GA, whom is working with MakerBot on select programs.  Highlighting the power of 3D printing, the Made in CES program will send makers from MakerBot and R/GA to scout the halls of CES in search of hot new products that will benefit from 3D printed accessories.  These could be a cool new 3D printed accessory, stand, component or complementary product or something from the massive library of 218,000 digital designs on MakerBot's Thingiverse.com.  The MakerBot designers will then sculpt a corresponding product or accessory and 3D print the item overnight, and within 24 hours, present it to the exhibitor the next day.

"We were the first to bring a 3D printer to CES, and this year, we're going to support exhibitors with 3D printed accessories for their products," noted Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot.  "We think we're on the cusp of a global maker movement and 3D printing can transform the way people think about products they use in their lives."

Companies interested in having their new product considered for MakerBot's Made in CES program can vie for the attention of MakerBot by posting a request for MakerBot to check out their product(s) on their social media channels.  Simply tweet, Instagram or tag on Facebook a photo of the item(s) to be considered, using the hashtag #MadeinCES.  MakerBot's team will also be out scouting the CES exhibit halls on their own, looking for the coolest and most groundbreaking products that will benefit from 3D printing.

MakerBot also encourages those interested in learning more about how 3D printing can help their business, to stop by the MakerBot CES booth and experience MakerBot first hand.  The MakerBot CES booth is located in the new 3D printing area in the LVCC Hall, 2nd Floor, South Floor 3, Booth #31624.
