WHY WAIT TO GET A 3D PRINTER WHEN YOU CAN START NOW?

3d LETTERING

You can print pretty much anything you want with a 3D printer. In fact we actually printed out the letters for our event! All they need now is a good lick of paint and they will be ready to go.

 The best thing about 3D printing is that you don’t have to wait until you have a printer to be a part of it. Our speaker Bernard Meade will share his ideas on how you can become involved in the 3D printing phenomenon at our event on Wednesday. To find out more about Bernard read his bio HERE.
