MakerBot Industries was born out of the NYC Resistor hackerspace in 2009. It is a company that produces a 3-D printer kit called MakerBot which sells for under $1,000. Founders Bre Pettis, Adam Mayer, and Zach “Hoeken” Smith used open-source software, the Arduino microcontroller and digital fabrication techniques to create a low-cost competitor to high-end 3-D printers that sell for well over $20,000
