This week for Makerbot Monday, we have the Michelin tire man.
This past Sunday marks the 118th birthday of the tire company and iconic mascot.
The history of Michelin goes back to 1889. Two brothers Edouard and Andre Michelin took over a rubber factory in Clermont-Ferrand. Together, they became France's leading producer of bicycle tires. 6 years later in 1895, they began manufacturing on motorized vehicles.
