This past week was TechCrunch Disrupt at Pier 48 in San Francisco. The Disrupt series started in 2011, and offers startups the chance to launch their products and services alongside some of the best and brightest in the tech world. We we're honored to be invited as part of start-up alley and walk people through how 3DPrinterOS works.
Speakers this year included Mark Cuban, Dan Gilbert, Vinod Khosla, as well as so many other influential and captivating names from the start-up and tech world.
