There was a mini Maker Faire in Estonia in the city I operate. I was out there with my electronics development company Tech-thing. I met bunch of awesome people, saw cool projects and met up with old friends. Because Estonia is so small, practically everybody were there.
First I saw Prototaip, a mechanical R&D company. List of other friendly faces: Wazombi labs, Intelligent Materials and Systems Laboratory, Skeemipesa, robot mannequin project (Fits.me), Idea lab protocenter. There was probably bunch of more people who I forget but they know who they are.
Overrall impression was really good. The place was packed with 3D printers and kids. Didn't expect so much of either. I am waiting for the day when everyone has a 3D printer and then they go - now what.
I also talked with couple of DIY guys about 3D CAD and most of them seemed to use sketchup. Seems reasonable since it is so easy, but on the other hand - it is the most awful program to use for mechanical drawings. FreeCAD wins on every day (and of course bunch of commercial programs).
I had lots of fun and I hope that Maker Faire will be back to Estonia soon.
