Happy Birthday MakerSlide

The intrepid @JohnMcwhirter pointed out, today is the 6th anniversary of MakerSlide! :tada::champagne:

On June 8th 2011 the original Kickstarter was funded.

After doing a little research and calculations he determined, in the last 6 years we’ve sold about 56 km of it! (that’s 56,000,000 mm for those playing along at home).

Which is also:

  • The height of 106 Sear Towers stacked on top of each other.
  • Enough to make an X-Carve with a 17-mile long Y-axis (you might need some supports!)
  • A little more than twice the length of the Large Hadron Collider.
  • Could easily penetrate the Earth’s crust (on at least 90% of the surface).
  • More than twice the height of Rheasilvia’s Central Peak (the tallest known mountain in the solar system).
  • The length of 35 Imperial I-class Star Destroyers :nerd_face:

Here’s a 56km radius around our address.

​Hats off to @BartDring for inventing it.

Here’s to another 6!


Congratulations. I am very pleased with all your team does. I am sure that you have many more years to grow this wonderful community
