Founded in early 2011 by Alice Taylor and three co-founders, MakieLab is a games-and-toys company, based in London, and is developing its first line of 3D-printed ultra-customisable dolls and action figures, plus associated gameworld and mobile apps.

Its a new kind of toy: customisable, 3D-printed, locally made, and game-enabled - all enabled by new design tools and methods.

Alice will be talking about the challenges of building a ground breaking business centred on customisation and 3D printing.

Previously, Alice was commissioning editor for education at Channel 4, where she commissioned a string of multiple award-winning games and media targeting teens and tweens, including two BAFTAs for Bow Street Runner and Privates, Best Game & Best Educational for 1066 and Smokescreen at SXSW, and the Prix Jeunesse for Routes. Previous to Channel 4, Alice was VP Digital Media at BBC Worldwide in Los Angeles.

D3DLIVE Speakers: Brad Peebler, Luxology Co Founder & President

Luxology are the guys that make modo - the 3D modeller, painter and renderer - who also license rendering technology to the likes of DS SolidWorks and Bentley Systems.

The team, based in Mountain View, CA, are very serious about modeling and rendering.

Brad’s title at Luxology is President but he remains very much involved in product development and is extremely knowledgeable about all things 3D. His main thing is trying to establish better workflows into the 3D content creation process.

He brings an interesting perspective to the conference as his experience and technology spans both the increasingly intersecting worlds of entertainment and CAD

Somehow he manages to create a “modcast” every week and never gets boring.

D3DLIVE Speakers: Hardi Meybaum, CEO, GrabCAD

We first met Hardi a few years back, since then GrabCAD has exploded into the world of 3D modelling and engineering. We can think on no one better placed to comment on CAD models being shared online as the world begins to look in depth at matters of online piracy and intellectual property.

GrabCAD is an ever expanding community of over 90,000 mechanical engineers, where they can upload and share their talent, expand knowledge, find a dream project and work with tools and features that make life better.

Hardi’s holds a MSc in production development from Tallinn University of Technology and has a background in manufacturing, as an engineer, consultant, CIO and ERP team manager. When not plotting how to bring the world’s engineers together, he spends time with his daughter and teaches his Dachshund Fix some soccer [sadly, the dog will not be present at D3DLIVE].

Prime Cuts: Take a spin - casino tech

In the coming weeks we’ll be losing the shirts from our backs during ‘off-time’ at events in Monaco and Las Vegas, so we thought it a good idea to investigate some casino technology design.

We stumbled across Gamesman, the UK-based firm that provides the key buttons, reels and other components to the flashing wonders that are the slot machines, and they were more than happy to explain the complexities of a slot machine (which cost in the region of $50,000 each to design and build) and the intricate part that they play in the process.

Having started by making parts for UK pub machines, the company expanded to include a facility in China and an office in Las Vegas, and now makes the parts for gaming machines in all the major casinos - for which every new machine is a bespoke job.

A button-basher’s dream, ready to be fitted to the Strip’s finest machines
