We first met Taj Chiu, then of Toy Builder Labs, about 18 months ago at the first SoCal MakerCon. We sat down with her again to learn why she was exhibiting at this SoCal MakerCon in a Raise3D booth. In this WTFFF?! episode brought to you live from the show floor, we learn how Toy Builder Labs and Raise 3D have joined forces, and what Raise 3D is doing with their new line of FFF 3D Printers to raise the standard for what you should expect from a 3D Printer, including a 10 micron layer thickness, or should I say thinness! Tom and Tracy learn about the Raise3D Printer Kickstarter campaign, and discuss making products in “old China” vs “new China” and what it takes to make the right product for the US market, regardless of where it is made.*Audio Quality Note: This episode was recorded live in a noisy trade show environment. There is some distortion in one one of the mics that we could not clean up. We apologize for the audio quality not being up to our usual standard, but we felt the information discussed is so valuable that we did not want to cut it.
ToyBuilder Labs sells 3D printer filament of many popular varieties in a wide range of colors. We’re a family company, run by married tech-nerds Taj and Joseph Chiu. Our personal touch is our greatest asset. Raise3D, Inc. is a professional designer and manufacturer of 3D printers. With over 3 years focusing on the 3D printing area, the company has offices in US, China and Hongkong to serve customers from different regions.
