3D Hubs Launching in New York City!

Origination: December 9, 2013 - New York, New York

3D Hubs, the world's largest network of 3D printers is going on a US unlock tour to bring 3D printing to local communities across the United States!

We are an Amsterdam-based startup connecting people that want to print in 3D with over nearly 2,000 people who own 3D printers so anyone can print in 3D just around their corner. Through 3D Hubs, anybody can turn their ideas into physical reality as we unlock the future of local manufacturing.

We opened our New York City office last month and now we are partnering with Makerbot, a global 3D printing leader, to unlock the city for 3D printing! To celebrate, we’ll be throwing a party for the NYC 3D printing community on December 12th. Join us for free drinks & bites, networking, live printing demos and a panel of exciting guest speakers that will inspire everyone to start 3D printing!

3D Hubs is ecstatic about teaming up with 3D printer owners and Makerspaces across the greater NYC area.  We will be joined by brilliant 3D printing presenters, each talking for 5 minutes about 3D printing and their area of expertise ranging from fashion, to materials science, to sustainable development, to building printers.

We have already launched across Europe and have had significant successes in London, Amsterdam, Berlin, and even Sao Paulo! By using our platform anyone with a 3D printer in these cities can now bring customized, locally produced goods to those around them. Together with our Hubs we strive to build communities that want to share the fun of making 3D printed products, while igniting a new industrial revolution in the process.

We hope that you will join 3D Hubs at our event in your community. Since we are in town, it would be lovely to meet with you to introduce you to the benefits it has to the technology, design, and educational communities in your city.
