It’s time once again for the world’s premier DIY 3D printer event, the 2016 Midwest RepRap Festival.
The 2016 Midwest RepRap festival is a yearly celebration of blue tape, aqua net, and tangled strands of 3D printer filament held at the Elkhart county fairgrounds in Goshen, Indiana. This year, the fairgrounds has fiber Internet, and we have a Dropcam. This can only mean one thing: live streaming from the best 3D printer convention on the planet.
The livestream is down because MRRF is over
This stream should be active the entire weekend, with the requisite breaks for sleep and to take the entire crew to the Chinese buffet down the street. Of course, if you’re in the area, you’re more than welcome to stop by. Registration is free, although a small donation would be appreciated.
The schedule for the event is as follows:
- Friday: now until 10pm Eastern
- Saturday: 10am to 6pm Eastern
- Sunday: 10am to 3pm Eastern
The (incomplete) list of speakers (which might be livestreamed) is as follows:
- E-Nable 3D printed prosthetics
- B3 Innovations From MRRF to retail
- IMade3D STEM + Jellybox
- MakerOS Make Money with 3D Printing
- J. Conway 3D Printer Adaptive Scanning Technologies

Hey guys! Are you reading these comments? If so send Brian out to dance for a bit.
3D printing-wise, I greatly improved the output of my PLA based DaVinci Jr. by carefully going over the whole finished surface with my awesome Dremel Versatip mini butane heat tool. Too little infill with too much heat = collapse, but there’s a nice balance there somewhere.
Yes, we are. No, I’m not.
Cheers! I have no idea why I’m still watching this… It’s like doing a maker fair where no one actually stops at my booth.
Trying to break The Internet?
I meant that to be a response to [chuck]’s comment…
Instead, how about some “Man on the Street” interviews with participants?
I don’t know about that but the guy at the bottom of the screen with the laptop and phone open seems due for some ‘Man on the Street’ pranking. Who is he?
Heading out there on Sunday. Super excited! Hope to see you guys there!
justpla, can you guys expedite some filament to me? Or is free the only option?
Atomic, same question. ;]
If hackaday uses ONE more of these autoplaying ad-like videos with sound I’m re-enabling adblock for this site!
I second that
Yeah, I’ve found it a bit irritating here at work.
(Lucky my supers didn’t hear it).
i have adblock enabled… it’s still auto-playing.
Yes, it’s quite annoying.
This would be awesome if there were some way to “walk” around the room via other cameras. What’s the big delta making?
the standard octopus.
Heh, it’s bigger than most people’s printers!
I’ll be out there tomorrow wearing my hackaday t-shirt!
The live stream is down :(
Is SeeMeCNC printing a giant rocket?
