There’s a whole host of 3D printing shops online, countless marketplace are popping up on almost a daily basis, but what about physical shops? When will we be able to stroll into a shop and 3D print the creations from our brain?
3D printing stores have been popping up around the world for some time now, Solidoodle recently announced they’d be taking over the former U.S.S.R., MakerBot opened their store in Manhattan, and Wired had a pop-up shop, complete with 3D printing, on Regent Street, London at the back-end of 2012. None of those are as big or as comprehensive as one opening in Central London in April this year, iMakr Store.
iMakr will cut the ribbon to their 2,500 square-foot complex in the heart of the capital’s designer district in Farringdon on the 30th April. Inside there’ll be a broad selection of sub £2,000 personal 3D printers along with a range of 3D scanners, materials and 3D printed products. The fully trained staff will also be hosting regular events, demos and workshops for the passing public to get involved with.
"3D printing is all about physical machines making physical things. People need a physical store to see, touch, feel and engage with the technology. That's what the iMakr store is all about." iMakr CEO Sylvain Preumont
