3D print services @makerbot #3dprinting about $20 / hour #makerbusiness
We stopped in to the NYC MakerBot and saw they are offering 3D print services – there were mostly Rep 2, 4th gens printing what looked like files folks brought in or were demos from the staff, pricing above.
We’re now offering an in-store 3D print service! Simply walk into any MakerBot® Retail Store with an STL, OBJ, or Thing file on a USB drive or SD card and sign up. Then bring your project to life using one of our in-store MakerBot® Replicator® 2 Desktop 3D Printers. If you’re eager to try 3D printing but not sure where to begin, check out the MakerBot® Thingiverse® 3D Design Community and choose from 100,000+ 3D design files. Pricing on our 3D print service is based on the size and complexity of your object, and time slots are limited, so arrive at the store early if you’re planning to 3D print an ambitious project.
There are a few 3D printing stores in NYC now, it would be interesting to do comparison for on-site printing pricing and services in the area.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
