Danish Minister gets 3D printed mini me at 3D Printhuset launch.
Copenhagen is now home to the world’s largest 3D Print Store, 3D Printhuset. The grand opening was witnessed by over 100 selected guests and the ribbon was cut by the Danish Minister for Higher Education and Science, Mrs. Sophie Carsten Nielsen.
Danish for “The 3D Printing House”, 3D Printhuset features a display of printers including the Da Vinci 1.0 3D Printer from XYZ Printing, the Cube 3 from 3D Systems and machines from other well-known brands such as Ultimaker and Makerbot. The 3,000 square feet premises also holds a range of scanning equipment including the Sense from 3D Systems, Artec scanners and the popular low cost scanner from Matter & Form.

The grand unveiling was opened by a speech from The Minister, a futurologist from the Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies and Jim Larsen, 3D Printhuset director.
“With this store we really hope to put Denmark on the map for 3D Printing. Denmark has been lacking behind in this important growth industry, but by making the technology readily available pricewise, we hope to change that”, said Jim Larsen. “3D Printhuset stocks all the leading 3D printers and 3D scanners from around the globe, and offers one-of-a-kind access to the technology via courses, workshops and support. It has never been this easy for consumers and a small and midsized company to get their hands on the new technology.”
The ever popular Mini-me 3D printing service is just one of the features on offer at this new venture and the Minister received her very own mini-me print at the launch with the help of an Artec scanner and 3D Systems full colour printer. A unique service called “From children’s drawing to sculpture” will also be available where children’s drawings can be turned into full colour 3D printed sculptures.
