The New York Hall of Science became a DIYer's paradise this weekend, as World Maker Faire New York, a two-day event dedicated to the celebration of science, technology and innovation, kicked off in Queens. And 3D printing was all the rage. Here, frogs, pots and shoes (although perhaps not comfortable ones), are among the objects made by 3D printing hobbyists at Maker Faire's 3D printing stage.
