iMakr Store @ London, UK – #3DxRetail #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Only time will tell which particular version of this phenomena will be sustainable and hold the interest of the public.

…Most of the printers were not running at the time, but it could have been because it was late in the day. The staff was eager to help and I spoke to a customer who was buying an Afinia that night. The lower section of the store is for training classes.
