Tormach PCNC 440 at Maker Faire New York

This last weekend, bus-loads of makers descended on the New York Hall of Science in Queens to attend the 2016 World Maker Faire.

Tormach was there to show off our PCNC 440, which was unveiled at the same even last year, and we got to see quite an array of projects and maker tools.

We even had several customers stop by the booth, one of which (ReDeTec) also had a booth at the faire and is using their PCNC 770 to make a plastic recycling unit for more sustainable 3D printer filament.

And, Make: Magazine put us in their photo-roll of the event, showing off a Raspberry Pi Zero case that just came off the PCNC 440.

We’re already looking forward to the next Maker Faire in San Francisco next spring, but we always love to see what Tormach owners are making. Send your projects and machining pictures to cfox@tormach.com, and you may just see them pop up in the blog!
