DigiFabCon Brings Together Maker Community

DigiFabCon Brings Together Maker Community

In its 5th year, DigiFabCon returned to Cambridge, MA in March to bring together a diverse group of makers who have one thing in common: using digital fabrication tools like 3D Printing, CAD design and laser cutting to change education, entrepreneurship, agriculture, startup creation, medicine, humanitarian aid, community building – well, the world!  From Fab Labs in inner city Detroit to makers sailing the seven seas, the democratization of new manufacturing tools is empowering people in ways never before imagined.
