Brooklyn-based 3D printer manufacturer Solidoodle heads to Washington, D.C., to share 3D printing at America's largest S.T.E.M. education event.

Brooklyn, NY February 28, 2014


3D-printer manufacturer Solidoodle is proud to join as a partner for the 3rd annual USA Science & Engineering Festival, to be held April 24-27, 2014 in Washington, D.C. The Brooklyn, NY-based company will bring its desktop 3D printers to showcase some of the latest available technology accessible for S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Education and Mathematics) education, including live 3D printing demonstrations for visitors.

"3D printers are great tools for S.T.E.M. education, and we're happy to see that many of our customers are schools and teachers," says Solidoodle CEO Sam Cervantes. "Because we focus on offering the best value for the consumer market with 3D printers ranging from $499 to $999, our products provide some of the best options for educators interested in bringing our technology into the classroom. We've been actively involved locally in helping develop educational programs at schools and this is an excellent opportunity to reach out at the national level."

The Expo is perfect for teens, children and their families, and anyone with a curious mind who is looking for a weekend of fun and discovery. Meet science celebrities like Mike Rowe, host of the Discovery Channel's Dirty Job series, Bill Nye the Science Guy, David Pogue, host of NOVA ScienceNow series on PBS, and Grammy Award-winning alternative music band "They Might Be Giants!"

Featured Product

PQ12-R Micro Linear Servo

PQ12-R Micro Linear Servo

The PQ12-R series of linear servos are the smallest affordable linear servo on the market today. Small enough to fit inside a tic tac box, it's very powerful with a maximum force of over 11lbs. It operates as a direct plug-and-play replacement for standard rotary servos, using the same standard 3 wire connector. Regardless of how you drive your servos, be it with an RC receiver, an Arduino board, or a VEX micro-controller, the PQ12-R servo will function in place of a regular servo, but with the added benefit of providing linear motion. They're available in a 20mm stroke coupled with gear ratio options of 30:1, 63:1 and 100:1 cover a large variety of applications. Our PQ12 is popular used in a variety of robotics applications, medical devices, radio control and 3D printable bionic hands. Our PQ12 is proudly designed in Canada by our in-house team of engineers and thoroughly tested before leaving our facility.
