WeCloneU is “cloning” people in Squirrel Hill with a combination of a room sized 3D scanner and 3D printers to make statues of you! We talk about the process, reactions and results from the local Comic Cons and Video Game Conventions, working out the initial kinks and more!
We chat with Aaron Hartman of Bits to Pieces about the rise of 3D Printing and his service that offers leasing services for the devices. We discuss the state of 3D printing with the local kids, working out of Work Hard Pittsburgh, how you can get into 3D printing, what sorts of practical uses are there of today’s printers, and the patent issues with 3D printing.
Katie Dudas talks with two of the hands on interns with PieceMaker Technologies to discuss how the 3D Printer kiosk is going to change toy stores, and maybe some other retail industries. We talk about the concept, how easy it is to make designs for (if you’re a 3D artist), and show off some of the products coming out of the machine!
