Check out the recent opening of another 3D Printer store, Deezmaker, in Pasadena, CA. A bit further than MakerBot for us, but great news for those in the Greater Los Angeles Area! They will be offering the Bukobot and those from other vendors as well as setting the space up as a 3D printing-focused makerspace.
If the MakerBot store in Manhattan is the East coast’s vanguard for 3D printer stores, Deezmaker’s just-opened store in Pasadena, California is the equivalent pioneer for the West coast crew. … No matter how it all shakes out, we’re hoping that the two near-simultaneous store openings are the start of a larger trend that takes 3D printing into the mainstream.
