BATON ROUGE - Inventors and compaines got their first chance to show off their products at the  Mini Makers Faire at the Library at Goodwood Satuday.

Everything from 3-D printing to fashion to ice cream making bicycles were on display.

Robb Perkins with Acadian Robotics, a company that specializes in 3-D printers, was there displaying the company's product for the first time to the public.

"When you have an idea and you want to take that idea and turn it into a physical object, 3-d printing is by far the most effective method of doing it," said Perkins.

He also pointed out that 3-D printing has the potential to change lives.

"People are building prosthetics for children. Think about the process of building a prosthetic for a child and the fact that that child grows over time. 3-D printers are able, in an afternoon, to model and print one for a child that can grow as the child grows."

More than five hundred people showed up to the faire.
