Moat Boat Paddle Battle is BACK! Enter to Win a 3D Printer!



It’s the return of the Moat Boat Paddle Battle, and this time, we’re bringing it to our own coast!

After an awesome turnout at Maker Faire Bay Area in May, we’re on the lookout for East Coasters to bring their racing prowess to World Maker Faire New York on September 26th and 27th.  Create your very own boat (just follow the rules), or download one of our free sample boats to get you started.

We’ll have two race classes: Youth Closed (for ages 15 and under only) and Open Class for all ages.  Get all the details on each class here.

Our awesome sponsors SeeMeCNC are with us again for the World Maker Faire New York battle – and thanks to them, we’ll have Orion Delta and Rostock Max 3D printers as prizes for the winners.

Ready, set, go!  Enter your boat (no walkups accepted!), and we’ll see you at the Faire!

We’ve Been Busy!

Here at Ocean State Maker Mill, we may have been quiet online recently, but we’ve been busy bees offline!

Four of Ocean State Maker Mill’s finest have just returned from San Francisco after participating in Make: Magazine’s Annual Desktop Fabrication Shootout!  With the event led by our very own Matt Stultz (3D Printing and Digital Fabrication Lead for Make:), and joined by members Jason, Spencer and Kurt – OSMM represented 1/4 of the entire testing team.  Look for testing results and reviews in the November issue of Make: Magazine.

We’re gearing up for upcoming Maker Faires – and we’ll see you at both the Rhode Island Mini Maker Faire and World Maker Faire New York!

And last but not least, we’ve been cranking out an entire set of Instructables to share our individual skills with the world!  Stay tuned for increased Instructables updates!
