Bold Machines, A 3D Printing Innovation Workshop Launched By MakerBot CEO Bre Pettis

Bold Machines

Bold Machines is a new workshop run by MakerBot CEO Bre Pettis and Stratasys (which recently acquired MakerBot), aimed at helping advance 3D printing innovation. The workshop’s first project is Margo, an upcoming 3D printed feature film.

Margo will be a feature film developed from compelling 3D-modeled characters–in the bottom up tradition of starting with collectibles and narratives rather than largescale, box-office driven production. We’ll then partner with a production company to transform the characters and storyline into a feature film. We have begun that process by publishing Margo as a downloadable character from the Margo feature film that you can 3D print.
