It was announced in September this year that Bre Pettis stepped down from his position of CEO of MakerBot. It was later announced by the Company that he made this decision because he was working on something big and wanted to give the project his full attention. The Bold Machines, the project Pettis has been busy with is basically an innovative workshop that is going to take place at Stratasys and is going to partner with the innovators in order to showcase MakerBot, Solidscape and Stratasys 3D Printer. The future goal of Bold Machines is to look for businesses, individuals and brands that can collaborate with the firm to design some cool 3D printers. The first project of the old machine is going to be “Margo” who is an inspiring character and is going to be the protagonist of an animation feature. The storyline indicates that she is an intelligent young detective, who is in search of her parents and goes missing after a space exploration mission. She is going to be the central character in the 3D printed story that is going to be created by the co-founders of Bold Machines, named Robert Steiner and Bre Pettis, along with taking some help from Anthony Willie. This team is also going to collaborate with an incredibly talented artist named Alves da Silva for the creation of Margo and the supporting cast (Darrow).
