iMakr Store, which launched their first location in London in May 2013, have announced the both the location and launch date of its latest 3D Printing-related store in New York: the store will be at 152 Allen Street, and the festivities will be from from 6pm – 11pm … tonight!
While New York has already proved the testing ground for a number of interested 3D printing-related retail stores, the flagship MakerBot Store, CUBO, 3D Heights, 3dea Pop-up Store, UPS Store 3D Printing Services, and more, this will be an opportunity for customers to get hands-on experience learning about a wide range of 3D printer vendors in one space.
One year after our launch in London, iMakr is excited to announce that it will be opening its 2nd store in Manhattan! The iMakr Store will offer:
- High quality 3D printers from around the world
- Training and workshops
- Technical support and maintenance
- A wide range of filament and other 3D printing materials and accessories
- Incredible 3D printed objects from world famous artists and designers
- And much, much more!
“We’re delighted to be replicating our highly successful model in New York, and look forward to providing the full 3D printing experience to the US market” – Sylvain Preumont, iMakr Founder
On June 19th, expect a celebratory drink while networking with industry leaders, members of the press, and 3D printing innovators and enthusiasts.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
